Is It Serious with Foamy Urine for IgA Nephropathy Patients

Question: When I pass urine, there is a lot of foam. Is this serious? I have IgA Nephropathy.

Is It Serious with Foamy Urine for IgA Nephropathy PatientsAnswer: Foamy urine is a common symptom of IgA Nephropathy. It indicates that there is something wrong with the glomeruli. As we all know, protein is an important component. It is said that seventy-five percent of the human body is made of protein. Without protein, our bodies would be unable to heal from injury, stop bleeding or fight infection, etc. Therefore, you should stop protein leakage as early as possible, or it may affect the normal function of body.

How to deal with foamy urine for IgA Nephropathy patients?

-The most common used drugs are steroids. They can inhibit kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of glomerular basement membrane to reduce the leakage of protein. The disadvantage is that they have many side effects.

-The fundamental way to treat foamy urine is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease, so we should treat this kind of disease from the abnormal immune system. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can eliminate immune complexes from the blood to reduce kidney inflammation. It can also block abnormal inflammatory reaction in the kidneys. Besides, it can increase the kidneys’ endurance to deposited IgA and immune complexes to reduce the inflammation reaction. What is more, it can strengthen immune system by using Chinese medicine to make the whole body balanced. After a period of treatment, you will find foam in urine becomes less and less. And you will feel better and better. Creatinine, BUN, GFR and some other indicators will all be improved. With the improvement of kidney function, you can live a normal life without worrying about dialysis or transplant.

Besides medical treatment, you should follow a low protein diet and choose high quality protein in a limited scope. For more information, please leave your basic information below. And our doctor will contact you later.
