Is Berger’s Disease the Same as Lupus Nephritis

Is Berger’s Disease the Same as Lupus NephritisBerger’s Disease is also called IgA Nephropathy. Both Berger’s Disease and Lupus Nephritis are associated with immune system. Is Berger’s Disease the same as Lupus Nephritis?

Berger’s Disease is different from Lupus Nephritis.

The reason why many patients mistake Berger’s Disease and Lupus Nephritis is that they have some similarity in clinical manifestation, such as skin rash, joint pain and so on. However, they are different.

Berger’s Disease is caused by immunoglobulin A(IgA) depositing in the mesangial area of glomeruli. IgA is an antibody, which helps our body fight against the disease. When bacteria and virus invade into the body, our body produces those antibodies.

Lupus is an systemic autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. When it begins to attack kidneys, Lupus Nephritis occurs.

Besides, they have some different symptoms. For example, IgA Nephropathy patients usually have hematuria when they get infections. While lupus nephritis patients usually have fever, muscle pain and so on.

How to treat Berger’s Disease and Lupus Nephritis?

Immunotherapy is a good choice for patients with autoimmune disease. It can cleanse the cycling immune complexes and inflammatory factors in the blood to prevent them from damaging your kidneys. It can also increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so that even if they deposit, they do not cause kidney inflammation. It can block the abnormal immune reaction to reduce the production of immune complexes. What is more, it can set up a good blood environment for the damaged kidneys to repair themselves.
