How Does Cold Weather Affect IgA NephropathyIn cold weather, the morbidity of IgA Nephropathy increases. How does cold weather affect IgA Nephropathy? If you want to know the answer, please go on reading.

Cold weather is a common cause of IgA Nephropathy.

When it is very cold, your immune system is weakened so that bacteria and virus enter your body easily. And then your body produces a lot of antibodies like IgA to fight against them. During this course, immune complexes come into being. Those immune complexes flow into kidneys with blood circulation. For IgA Nephropathy patients, their IgA receptors in kidneys may be abnormal so that kidneys can not filter them out of the body. Those deposited immune complexes trigger inflammatory response, leading to blood clotting and dissolving system obstacle. During this course, many inflammatory medium are produced. They may dilate or block the filtration hole of basement membrane and impair the charge barrier so that protein and red blood cells which should be retained in the body leak into the urine. If you do not take treatment as early as possible, inflammatory response impairs your kidney function.

How to protect yourself from IgA Nephropathy?

When you feel cold, you should put on clothes timely to prevent cold and infections. Besides, you should keep you hands and skin cleanse to reduce the risk of infection.

Even if you have IgA Nephropathy, timely and appropriate treatment can help you protect the kidneys from being damaged further. Considering that IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease, we should set about regulating the abnormal immune system. Immunotherapy combines with western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can cleanse immune complexes from the blood to reduce their deposition. It can also block the abnormal immune reaction 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, the damaged kidneys can be repaired to certain extent.
