What Causes Joint Pain for IgA Nephropathy

What Causes Joint Pain for IgA NephropathySometimes IgA Nephropathy patients complain about joint pain. Though it is not a life-threatening problem, it is a response of your kidney function. What causes joint pain for IgA Nephropathy? Now let’s have a quick look.

Joint pain may be caused by accumulated uric acid.

Without effective treatment, IgA Nephropathy impairs your kidneys’ function. As a result, waste products build up in the blood. Uric acid is the waste product of purine. When their concentration is high in the blood, they may crystallize and deposit in the joints, which over time causes joint inflammation and joint pain. This medical condition is also called gout.

Joint pain may be caused by calcium deficiency.

The damaged kidneys can not activate vitamin D so as to affect the calcium absorption. Besides, phosphorus and calcium are counteractive. When blood phosphorus level is high in blood, it draws calcium from bones so as to make your bones fragile. When your bones become weak, you easily suffer from joint pain.

Joint pain may be caused by medicine you take.

In order to have a better control of IgA Nephropathy, you may have to take various medicines, among which there are steroids and immunosuppressants. They have many side effects if used for a long time. Joint pain may be their side effect.

When you have joint pain frequently, you should talk with your doctor to find the underlying cause of joint pain. And then suit the remedy to the case. Do not take painkiller optionally, because some of them have renal toxicity, which may worsen your disease. When you have severe joint pain, try massage, acupuncture, moxibustion, medicated bath and some other natural remedies. They are helpful in relieving your pain. But the fundamental way is still to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
