Vascular disease is the most life-threatening complication of heart failure and also the leading one cause for kidney disease patients to lose their life. For IgA Nephropathy, they may suffer no severe complications or symptoms in early stage, but when illness condition runs to end stage, they will run high risk for various complications such as vascular disease.
