What Happens when Kidneys Shut Down for IgA Nephropathy Patients

What Happens when Kidneys Shut Down for IgA Nephropathy PatientsIn the early stage of IgA Nephropathy, the symptoms may be so slight that you can hardly feel them. Not until it develops to advance stage can you realize that you are with IgA Nephropathy. What happens when kidneys shut down for IgA Nephropathy patients?


When your kidneys are not able to work properly, a lot of metabolic waste and toxins build up in the blood. And then you may have many discomforts, such as nausea, vomiting, poor sleeping quality, poor appetite, skin itchy, fatigue, etc.


Many IgA Nephropathy patients have edema in some parts of body, such as ankle, eyelid, face, etc. When it develops to kidney failure, it may appear in the whole body. Besides edema, you have less urine output and frequent urination.


The damaged kidneys can not secrete enough erythropoietin to make red blood cells so as to cause anemia. Thereby IgA Nephropathy patients often feel cold and weak.

High blood pressure

With the decline of kidney function, IgA Nephropathy patients often have high blood pressure. High blood pressure can speed up the progression to kidney failure. Therefore, IgA Nephropathy patients should bring blood pressure under control as early as possible.

Other symptoms

When your kidneys shut down, you may have other complications, such as foamy urine, diarrhea, thirsty, drowsiness, etc. Another typical symptom of IgA Nephropathy is that once you have cold or infection, especially upper respiratory infections, the urine color becomes red.

When you have the above symptoms, you should talk with your doctor and take treatment as soon as possible. Early treatment can prevent further kidney damage and protect the remaining kidney function. Immunotherapy helps you regulate the immune system and improve kidney function rather than just control symptoms. If you are interested in this therapy, please consult online doctor for free.
