Creatinine 2.2 and eGFR 26 and IgA Nephropathy: What Is the Approximate Years Before I Need Dialysis

Question: I am diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy. My creatinine is 2.2 and eGFR is 26. I am 28 years old. What is the approximate years before I need dialysis?

Creatinine 2.2 and eGFR 26 and IgA Nephropathy: What Is the Approximate Years Before I Need DialysisAnswer: Now your eGFR is 26, which indicates that your kidney disease is in stage 4. Without timely and effective treatment, your eGFR will continue to decline. When it is lower than 15, dialysis may be needed to maintain your life. As to the question what is the approximate years before you need dialysis, it is difficult to answer. Because it depends on many factors, such as your current physical condition, your symptoms and complications, your lifestyle, treatment you receive, etc. Generally speaking, IgA Nephropathy is a chronic kidney disease, so it usually takes many years to develop to kidney failure. But now your case is very severe, maybe it just takes several months to progress to kidney failure. If you do not want to do dialysis, you should take treatment as early as possible to promote your kidney function.

IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease caused by IgA lodging in the mesangial area of glomeruli. Conventional treatment for IgA Nephropathy is just to block the inflammatory reaction caused by IgA rather than cleanse them from the kidneys and blood. Immunotherapy is a breakthrough in treating IgA Nephropathy. It combines western medicine and Chinese medicine to cleanse the cycling IgA immune complexes and decompose the deposited IgA immune complexes so as to eliminate kidney inflammation. It can also strengthen your innate immune system to reduce the production of immune complexes. Moreover, it can improve blood circulation to provide enough oxygen and blood for kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, your eGFR will increase and your creatinine 2.2 will come down.

You are still very young. If you really want to enjoy your remaining years, do not miss the best time for treatment. Once you start dialysis, it becomes very difficult to get rid of it. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
