Is IgA Nephropathy Contagious

Is IgA Nephropathy ContagiousWhen IgA Nephropathy occurs in your mind the first time, you may have few knowledge of such a kind of disease. Is IgA Nephropathy contagious? No matter the patients or their friends or family members all have such a concern. In this article, let’s look for the answer together.

IgA Nephropathy is not contagious.

IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease. When you have infection or cold, your immune system becomes low so that bacteria and virus invades into your body. And then your body produces a lot of antibodies such as IgA to resist those bacteria and virus. For IgA Nephropathy patients, their IgA is abnormal. IgA combines with themselves to make IgA immune complexes. With blood circulation, immune complexes come to kidneys. Because IgA receptors in kidneys are also abnormal so that they can not be removed from kidneys. In order to cleanse them, your body launches inflammatory response. Short-term inflammation is beneficial. Long-term inflammation causes damage to the kidneys.

From the above, we can see that IgA Nephropathy is not contagious. As their friends or family member, we should care them and help them live a normal life.
