Is It Necessary for IgA Nephropathy Child Patients to Do Renal Biopsy

Is It Necessary for IgA Nephropathy Child Patients to Do Renal BiopsyA renal biopsy is a medical procedure in which a small piece of tissues are removed from the kidneys. Generally speaking, if you want to know the type of kidney disease such as Minimal Change Disease and FSGS, you should do renal biopsy, but not all kidney diseases need renal biopsy and not all kidney patients need to do renal biopsy. Is it necessary for IgA Nephropathy child patients to do renal biopsy? Renal biopsy indeed can help you ensure IgA Nephropathy. But it is not a necessity, especially for child patients.

Disadvantages of renal biopsy

-As long as you get kidney disease, your kidneys have been severely damaged. Renal biopsy is an invasive test, which may add insult to injury so as to speed up kidney failure.

-Because the acquired tissues are very limited, they can not reflect the whole truth of your kidneys. Sometimes there may be deviation, leading to misdiagnosis.

-It is likely for the injured part of kidney to be infected, worsening blood urine. In severe cases, it may cause death.

How to diagnose whether you have IgA Nephropathy or not without renal biopsy?

In some hospitals, your doctor may tell you to do renal biopsy for a must if you want to have an accurate diagnosis. That is because they do not have more advanced tests. In reality, there exist many advanced tests now in the world. For example, urinary protein component test. It can tell you which kind of epithelial cells are damaged, where the damaged cells locate and how serious the cells are injured. Urine Renal Tubule Epithelial Cell test is also a good choice for you to ensure how serious the renal tubule epithelial cells are injured and what treatment we should use to repair them. Space limited, so we do not list all the tests here. If you are interested in them ,please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.

From the above, we can see that it is not necessary for IgA Nephropathy child patients to do renal biopsy. Hope it can help you have a good control of IgA Nephropathy.
