What Side Effects Do You Have from Uloric or Low Dose Prednisone with IgA Nephropathy

Question: I have IgA Nephropathy. I'm still at about 50% GFR and next month I'm going on Uloric 40mg and prednisone 10mg daily for my gout. What side effect have you all had from either Uloric or low dose prednisone?

What Side Effects Do You Have from Uloric or Low Dose Prednisone with IgA NephropathyAnswer: Gout is not uncommon among IgA Nephropathy patients. It is a kind of arthritis caused by uric acid depositing in the joints. With gout, you may have sudden burning pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints. In order to control it, your doctor may prescribe various medications, such as uloric and prednisone.

Uloric and its side effects

Uloric is used to lower uric acid levels in people with gout. It works by reducing the amount of uric acid made by the body. But sometimes it may cause some unwanted side effects, such as black stools, chest pain, chills, cloudy urine, difficult with moving, dry mouth, cough, etc.

Side effects of low dose prednisone

Prednisone is the most common used drugs for kidney patients. It can inhibit inflammation in the kidneys to reduce protein leakage. It can also block the inflammation in joints to control the pain. But it also has many side effects, such as weight gain, diabetes, osteoporosis, infections, etc. Besides, if prednisone has been taken for a long time, your body may stop producing its own steroid hormone. When your follow a low dose prednisone, you body may be short of steroid hormones, leading to an Addisonian crisis, which may cause poor appetite, nausea, vomit, weak, rapid heart beat, fever, etc. In severe case, it may threaten your life. Therefore, you should taper the use of prednisone gradually under the instruction of doctor.

How to improve your GFR to remove uric acid from the blood?

The reason why your blood uric acid level is high is that your kidneys are unable to cleanse waste products from the blood. Therefore, if you want to lower uric acid and get rid of gout, you should repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Immunotherapy can regulate immune system and cleanse immunoglobulin A immune complexes from the blood to reduce kidney inflammation. It can also set up a good blood environment to speed up kidney recovery. After a period of treatment, your damaged kidneys can regain their ability.
