Does IgA Nephropathy Lead to FSGSIgA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease) is the most common form of glomerulonephritis in the world, which is caused by immunoglobulin A depositing in the glomeruli, where it creates inflammation.

This therapy can cleanse the cycling immune complexes in the blood, remove cytokine and decompose the deposited immune complexes in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation. It can also strengthen innate immune system to reduce the production of immune complexes. Besides, it can increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so as to prevent inflammation. After a period of treatment, your kidney disease can get under control.
