Will UTIs Impact on IgA Nephropathy

Will UTIs Impact on IgA NephropathyUrinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are the most common type of infection in humans. IgA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease) is the most common form of glomerulonephritis in the world. Will UTIs impact on IgA Nephropathy?

UTIs worsens IgA Nephropathy.

IgA Nephropathy is associated with immune system. And the use of steroids and immunosuppressants can weaken your immune system further. When your immunity becomes low, bacteria and virus can invade into body easily. That is why many patients with IgA Nephropathy develop UTIs. UTIs can stimulate your body to produce a lot of antibodies to fight against the bacteria and virus. During this course, massive immune complexes come into being. Those immune complexes can go into the kidneys with blood circulation and then trigger the inflammatory reaction in the kidneys so as to worsen IgA Nephropathy.

How to treat UTIs for IgA Nephropathy?

Conventional treatment for UTIs is to use antibiotics to kill the intruders. But many antibiotics have renal toxicity, so you had better talk with your doctor before taking those medications. Drinking lots of water is also helpful in flushing the bacteria from your system Besides, you can try some apple cider vinegar and some herbal tea, such as nettle leaf tea and dandelion tea. If you do not want to suffer from those complications of IgA Nephropathy, you should strengthen your immunity. Immunotherapy can not only help you improve kidney function by cleansing the immune complexes and inflammatory chemicals from the blood and increasing the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes, but also strengthen your immunity to prevent bacteria and virus from invading into your body. Maybe you can have a try.
