Only very few IgA Nephropathy have rapidly progressive IgA Nephropathy. For most patients, it takes years, even decades, to develop kidney failure, which depends on your current medical condition. For example., if you have little or no proteinuria, you have a low risk of progression. If you have overt proteinuria or an elevated serum creatinine, there has 15 to 25 percent possibility for you to develop ESRD in 10 years and 20 to 30 percent for you at 20 years. During this long course, if you take effective treatment aggressively, it is likely for you to prolong the progression as long as possible.

How to halt IgA Nephropathy from developing to ESRD?

Conventional treatment for IgA Nephropathy is to use steroids and immunosuppressants to stop the protein leakage or use diuretics to relieve swelling or use ACEI or ARB to lower blood pressure. Though they can help you to certain extent, they can not help you treat IgA Nephropathy from the root. That is why your kidney function keeps declining with treatment. IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease caused by IgA depositing in the kidneys, so we should regulate the abnormal immune system and cleanse those IgA from the kidneys and cycling blood. We should also increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so as to prevent inflammation. Besides, we should set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine, which can help you achieve all the goal, so you can have a try.
