Can IgA Nephropathy Cause Memory Loss

Can IgA Nephropathy Cause Memory LossMemory loss is very upsetting, not matter for children or adults. IgA Nephropathy is an illness regarding kidney and when it develops to advanced stage, many patients complain memory loss. Why is this? Can IgA Nephropathy cause memory loss?

IgA Nephropathy indeed causes memory loss and this problem is especially serious or obvious when illness is in kidney failure stage, because failure of kidney has a detrimental effect on the working of many other organ systems of the human body, including nerve system.

IgA Nephropathy is a glomerular disease and progresses over time if no treatment is given to stop it. In many cases, patients are just prescribed with oral medicines to control their symptoms, which is very good, but can not solve problems at all. Due to improper treatment, more and more kidney damages are caused in IgA Nephropathy and finally, kidney failure is caused. The major job of kidney is to cleanse blood by removing toxins out of the body with urine. When kidneys fail to do this job well, toxic substances build up in the blood. Memory loss is caused when nerve system is affected due to high levels of toxins in blood. Memory loss is just one of the clinical manifestation of nerve damage in IgA Nephropathy. Besides, it, there are numbness in limbs, insomnia, poor concentration, convulsions, slow response and muscle spasm.

IgA Nephropathy causes no physical discomforts when it is in early stage, so we need to take treatment as soon as possible to stop further illness condition with the diagnosis. This not only helps to prevent memory loss, but also many other physical discomforts. Additional, dialysis or kidney transplant is needed to prolong life span, so if IgA Nephropathy is kept in early stage, dialysis and kidney transplant will never be needed.
