How Critical is IgA Nephropathy with Crescent

How Critical is IgA Nephropathy with CrescentIgA Nephropathy is the most common cause of primary glomerulonephritis. With the development of IgA Nephropathy, there may be crescent or segmental sclerosis or global sclerosis in the glomeruli so as to affect their normal function. How critical is IgA Nephropathy with crescent?

According to H.S.Lee’s theory, IgA Nephropathy is classified into five grades.


Grade I

normal or focal mesangial cell proliferation

Grade II diffuse mesangial cell proliferation, or less than 25% of glomeruli with crescent (Cr) segmental sclerosis (SS)/global sclerosis (GS)
Grade III

25-49% of glomeruli with Cr/SS/GS

Grade IV

50-75% of glomeruli with Cr/SS/GS

Grade V

More than 75% of glomeruli with Cr/SS/GS

Conventional treatment for IgA Nephropathy is to use medications such as steroids and other immunosuppressants to block kidney inflammation and reduce protein leakage, but it can not stop the kidneys from fibrosis, because it can not cleanse those immune complexes from the kidneys. It is those immune complexes that cause inflammation and inflammation can lead to fibrosis. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to increase blood flow into the kidneys so as to improve ischemia and anoxia. It can also decompose immune complexes in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. In order to achieve a good therapeutic effect, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is often used together with Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various Medicinal Soup. After a period of treatment, your IgA Nephropathy can be controlled well.From the above form, we can see that from Grade II IgA Nephropathy, there is crescent in the glomeruli. Therefore, it is difficult to say whether it is critical or not with crescent, but importance should be attached to glomeruli with crescent, because without timely treatment, they become fibrosis.
