Why Does IgA Nephropathy Cause Frequent Sore Throat and Colds

Why Does IgA Nephropathy Cause Frequent Sore Throat and ColdsFor people with IgA Nephropathy, they often have sore throat and colds. As long as sore throat and colds occur, it is likely for them to have blood in urine. Why does IgA Nephropathy cause frequent sore throat and colds? After reading, you can find the answer.

It results from poor immunity.

Compared with healthy people, IgA Nephropathy patients have poor innate immune system. And conventional treatment for IgA Nephropathy is to use steroids and other immunosuppressants to inhibit kidney inflammation. If used for long-term, those medications can weaken your immune system further. A compromised immune system makes your body vulnerable by bacteria and virus. That is why IgA Nephropathy patients have frequent sore throat and colds.

When bacteria and virus come into your body, your body produce a lot of antibodies like IgA to fight against them. During this course, massive immune complexes come into being. With blood circulation, they come into the kidneys, which can trigger the kidney inflammation again. And then you have blood urine, foamy urine and some other symptoms.

How to reduce the frequent sore throat and colds for IgA Nephropathy patients?

The fundamental way is to strengthen your immunity.

-Do exercise regularly.

-Have a good rest.

-Keep good mood.

-Follow a balanced diet, which is renal-friendly.

-Remove tonsil. If it is the tonsil that gets infected frequently, tonsil may have to be removed to reduce infection in the early stage of IgA Nephropathy.

-Immunotherapy is also a good therapy for IgA Nephropathy patients to strengthen immunity. It can cleanse the cycling immune complexes and inflammatory factors in the blood to reduce kidney inflammation. It can also increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes to prevent kidney inflammation. Besides, it can block the abnormal immune reaction to reduce the production of immune complexes. After a period of treatment, not only is your kidney disease improved to certain extent, but also your immunity is strengthened.
