What Percentage Should You Start Dialysis with IgA Nephropathy

What Percentage Should You Start Dialysis with IgA NephropathyWhen your kidneys are severely damaged by IgA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease), you may have to start dialysis to take over part of your kidney function to sustain your life. What percentage should you start dialysis with IgA Nephropathy?

Generally speaking, when your serum creatinine is more than 707 umol/L or when your blood urea level is about 30 mmol/L or when your potassium level is over 6.5 mmol/L or when your GFR is less than 15, you should start dialysis. But for some IgA Nephropathy patients, they should start dialysis early when they have severe complications, such as nausea, vomiting, severe swelling, heart failure, metabolic acidosis, hyperthyroidism, diabetes, etc, because those complications may threaten their life without effective treatment. While for some IgA Nephropathy patients, they should put off dialysis if they do not have those severe symptoms and complications, because staring dialysis too early is not good for preserving the remaining kidney function.

Dialysis can help you cleanse the excessive waste products and fluid from the blood. But if you want to lead a normal life with IgA Nephropathy, you had better not receive dialysis, because it has many side effects as well. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we usually help patients to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Because IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease, we start about regulating the abnormal immune system. Immunotherapy is a good choice for you, because it can block kidney inflammation and set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing and it can also offer the damaged kidneys with essential nutrients to speed up kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, you can regain some kidney function.

What percentage should you start dialysis with IgA Nephropathy? Patients vary from patients. And dialysis is not the only way to treat kidney failure caused IgA Nephropathy. If you want to live a normal life without dialysis, you should take treatment as early as possible to improve your kidney function.
