Can IgA Nephropathy Affect Intestines

Can IgA Nephropathy Affect IntestinesIgA Nephropathy is one of the most common primary glomerular disease. It is caused by IgA and immune complexes depositing in the mesangial areas. With IgA Nephropathy, you will have many symptoms, such as blood urine, proteinuria, edema, high blood pressure, etc. Can IgA Nephropathy affect intestines?

IgA Nephropathy can affect intestines.

Kidney is the main filter of the body which removes waste and toxins from the body, while retaining the useful substance. It also performs many bodily functions, such as controlling fluid balance, regulating electrolytes, regulating blood pressure, secrete erythropoietin and some other hormones, etc.

When kidneys function improperly, all of systems will be affected, including intestines, because of accumulated the waste and toxins. For example, urease in intestines can decompose urea into ammonia. And ammonia stimulates gastrointestinal mucous membrane, leading to nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, poor appetite, etc. Besides, if IgA Nephropathy patients have edema, they are often required to limit the intake of water, which may cause constipation.

Besides intestines, blood system, bones, neuromuscular system, cardiovascular system and so on will also be affected by IgA Nephropathy.

How to treat IgA Nephropathy?

The conventional treatment for IgA Nephropathy is to control symptoms. In ESRD, dialysis and kidney transplant are needed. But that is not enough. If you want to live a normal life with IgA Nephropathy, you should repair the damaged kidneys. Because IgA Nephropathy is associated with poor immune system, we should set about regulating the abnormal immune system. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can cleanse immune complexes and other inflammatory factors from the blood to reduce inflammation. It can also block abnormal immune reaction in the kidneys. Moreover, it can increase the kidneys’ tolerance to IgA and immune complexes. Long-term treatment with Immunotherapy can help you strengthen immune system and improve kidney function.

If you want to improve the prognosis of IgA Nephropathy, you should receive treatment as early as possible. For more information, please leave a message below or send emails to igacure@gmail.com.
