Not everyone with IgA Nephropathy end up on dialysis.

IgA Nephropathy is a benign kidney disease, which usually develops slowly over many years to end stage kidney failure. But the course of the disease in each person is uncertain. For some patients, they get complete remission, while some patients develop kidney failure quickly. When you get complete remission, you won’t end up on dialysis. If you can control IgA Nephropathy very well, it is possible for it not to develop to ESRD when your life is coming to an end.

How to get complete remission or control IgA Nephropathy well?

IgA Nephropathy occurs when immunoglobulin A lodges in your kidneys. This results in local inflammation, which over time hampers your kidneys. Conventional treatment is to use steroids and immunosuppressants such as prednisone and cellcept to block kidney inflammation to stop further kidney damage. But that is not enough. When your get infected, the production of immune complexes increases. Those immune complexes may trigger kidney inflammation again. And this time, it becomes more serious. Besides. When you stop the medications or reduce their dosage, it is likely for the kidney inflammation to flare up again. Therefore, if you want to control IgA Nephropathy well, you should prevent immune complexes from depositing in the kidneys and cleanse them from the blood. You should also increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so that even if there are immune complexes, they do not cause kidney inflammation. Immunotherapy can help you achieve all the goals through six steps, namely immune diagnosis, immune clearance, immune blockage, immune tolerance, immune regulation and immune protection.

Does everyone with IgA Nephropathy end up on dialysis? Of course not. If you do not want to end up on dialysis, you should take treatment as early as possible to get IgA Nephropathy under control.
