Can Alternative Care Help IgA Nephropathy Patients Better for A Healthy Life Ahead

Question: My sister has been diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy. Now her creatinine level is 1.79 mg/dL and her blood pressure high. There are not other outward symptoms. Currently she is under traditional medicine, such as medication for blood pressure and steroids prescribed by her renal specialist. She is only 32 years old. I am wondering if alternative care can help her better for a healthy life ahead.

Can Alternative Care Help IgA Nephropathy Patients Better for A Healthy Life AheadAnswer: From what you said, we can see that even though with treatment, her creatinine level still increases (Normal creatinine level ranges from 0.5 to 1.2 mg/dL), which indicates that her kidneys are damaged. Now her blood pressure is also high. High blood pressure is a risk factor for IgA Nephropathy patients, because it can further damage to the kidneys and impair the normal function of heart. If you want to help her better for a healthy life ahead, you should do the following things.

-Normalize blood pressure

Generally speaking, western medicine such as ACEI, ARB, CCB, diuretics, beta blockers and so on can help patients have a good control of blood pressure. If they do not take effect, you can try some Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies, such as Moxibustion and Acupuncture, medicated foot bath, etc.

-Reduce infections

Infection is a trigger of relapse of IgA Nephropathy. Frequent relapse speeds up kidney failure. After infection, IgA Nephropathy patients may have blood urine and some other symptoms. Therefore, you should take good care of your sister to prevent infections. For example, do not go to people-intensive places to reduce the risk of flu, take off clothes or put on clothes according to weather change to prevent colds.

-Follow a renal-friendly diet

Diet plays a very important role in maintaining kidney function. For her case, she should limit the intake of salt, protein and fat and increase the intake of vitamins and fiber. Our online doctor can help you make a personalized diet plan for free.

What is the most important, you should find a suitable treatment plan. Immunotherapy can help you regulate immune system, cleanse immunoglobulin A immune complexes from the blood and increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so as to reduce kidney inflammation. It can also help you repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Moreover, it can help you reduce or stop the use of steroids so as to get rid of their side effects.
