Proteinuria 4 + with IgA Nephropathy: What Should I Do

Proteinuria 4 + with IgA Nephropathy: What Should I DoIgA is a kind of antibody, which fights against bacteria and virus invading into the body. But for some people with immunodeficiency, IgA and immune complexes may deposit in the kidneys, leading to inflammation. Inflammation can increase the permeability of capillaries, and then protein which should be retained in the blood vessels leaks into the urine. Proteinuria 4+ with IgA Nephropathy: What should I do?

Steroid treatment

Steroids can inhibit inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to reduce the leakage of protein. But in the long run steroids have many side effects, such as weight gain, diabetes, bone disease, etc. Besides, as long as you give steroid treatment, proteinuria comes back again.

Protein intake management

To reduce proteinuria, you should control the protein intake. Though massive protein leaks into the urine, it does not mean you should eat a lot of protein. Moderate protein intake can meet the physical need. Besides, you should choose high quality protein, such as egg white and lean meat to eat rather than plant protein, because animal protein produces less waste.

Treatment to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function

If you want to get rid of proteinuria, you should remove the inflammatory factors from the blood, repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Immunotherapy is such a therapy, which combines western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can block the abnormal immune system, combine with immune complexes, split them and expel them from the blood. Moreover, it can increase the kidney’s tolerance to IgA and immune complexes so that inflammation can be relieved. After long-term of treatment, the damaged kidneys can gradually restore their function and your immune system can also be strengthened.

Proteinuria 4+ is a very serious symptom. If you can not bring it under control as early as possible, it may speed up the progression to kidney failure, make you look increasingly frail, and immune system will also become weak, etc. For more information, please contact us at igacure@gmail.com or leave a message below.
