Do All Patients with IgA Kidney Disease Need Dialysis

Do All Patients with IgA Kidney Disease Need DialysisIgA kidney disease or IgA Nephropathy is the most common form of glomerulonephritis. So far no treatment can cure it. That is to say, it will develop to end stage renal failure when you have to do dialysis to sustain your life. Do all patients with IgA kidney disease need dialysis?

Not all IgA Nephropathy patients need dialysis.

Generally speaking, IgA Nephropathy is a benign kidney disease, which progresses slowly, but the course of the disease in each person is uncertain. Some people take years to progress to ESRD, while some people develop ESRD in several weeks or months. If you can find a correct treatment for your IgA Nephropathy, it is possible for you not to do dialysis until your life is going to an end.

How to avoid dialysis for IgA Nephropathy patients?

-Certain medication can slow its course

Conventional treatment is to use western medicine to eliminate symptoms. For example, ACEI or ARBs is used to lower blood pressure. Statin is used to reduce blood cholesterol levels. Steroids and immunosuppressants are used to block kidney inflammation and reduce kidney leakage. Water pills sometimes are used to relieve swelling. When all of your symptoms disappear, it does not mean your kidney disease is cured. Because some factors such as infections can call back IgA Nephropathy associated symptoms.

-Immunotherapy can repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function.

Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. They make up respective shortcomings and achieve a better therapeutic effect. This therapy can cleanse the cycling IgA immune complexes and inflammatory chemicals from the blood to reduce their deposition in the kidneys. It can also increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so that even if there are immune complexes, they do not cause kidney inflammation. What is more, they can make your whole body harmonious and balanced to reduce its relapse. After a period of treatment, not only the symptoms associated with IgA Nephropathy will disappear, but also your kidney function will be promoted. Under the treatment of Immunotherapy, IgA Nephropathy won’t relapse easily as well.

Do all patients with IgA kidney disease need dialysis? No. If you do not want to do dialysis with IgA Nephropathy, you should choose a suitable treatment plan to help you preserve kidney function. If you can send your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com, our doctor can give you some treatment suggestions according to your conditions.
