You should not give up treatment even if you feel good.

IgA Nephropathy is a chronic disease. When there are no symptoms, you should not stop the treatment or reduce the dosage of medications without the instruction of doctor, because it is likely for IgA Nephropathy to relapse. Conventional treatment for IgA Nephropathy is just to control the symptoms, but that is not enough. IgA Nephropathy is caused by IgA immune complexes depositing in the kidneys, so it is necessary for you to cleanse those immune complexes from the kidneys. Immunotherapy can remove the cycling immune complexes and inflammatory chemicals from the blood to reduce their deposition. It can also block abnormal immune reaction and increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes to stop further kidney damage. After a period of treatment, your kidney function will take a turn for better.
