How Serious is Stage 3 IgA Nephropathy

How Serious is Stage 3 IgA NephropathyAccording to the severity of kidney damage, IgA Nephropathy is classified into five stages. How serious is stage 3 IgA Nephropathy? After reading this article, you will find the answer.

IgA Nephropathy stage 3 means your kidneys are moderately damaged.

IgA Nephropathy usually occurs after infections especially respiratory tract infections. Its typical symptom is blood urine. In some cases, it is visible blood urine, which makes this disease a little serious. But in fact, IgA Nephropathy is a benign kidney disease, which progresses slowly over many years to kidney failure. In stage 3, kidneys are damaged moderately. Besides blood urine, you may have foamy urine, high blood pressure, shortness of breath, fatigue, swelling, muscle cramp and some other symptoms. If you want to lead a normal life with IgA Nephropathy, you should take treatment aggressively in this stage to stop its progression.

How to prevent stage 3 IgA Nephropathy from progressing?

The reason why your kidneys are damaged is that IgA immune complexes deposit in the kidneys to cause inflammation. Western medicine such as steroids and immunosuppressants can help you block kidney inflammation, but they can not cleanse those immune complexes. Under some inducement, kidney inflammation flares up again. Immunotherapy is to make use of many blood purification therapies, such as Immune Absorption to cleanse the cycling immune complexes in the blood and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to decompose the deposited immune complexes. Immunotherapy can also increase the kidney’s tolerance to immune complexes so that even if there are immune complexes, they do not cause inflammation. Besides, it can strengthen your innate immune system to fight against the bacteria and virus so as to reduce the production of immune complexes. After a period of treatment, your kidney function can be promoted to certain extent.
