Will IgA Nephropathy Cause Dark Brown Urine

Question: I have had IgA Nephropathy for 10 years so far and have only two episodes of actual visual blood in my urine, which was years ago. For the past week I have had really dark brown urine. I also have abdominal pain and feel bloated and do not urinate frequently. Will IgA Nephropathy cause these problems?

Will IgA Nephropathy Cause Dark Brown UrineAnswer: IgA Nephropathy indeed cause these problems. We all know blood urine or hematuria is a common symptom of IgA Nephropathy and if not treated fundamentally, it relapses easily. Actually, urine looks like blood because there are lots of red blood cells in urine. In IgA Nephropathy, hematuria not necessarily means red urine, but means urine with excess red blood cells. For IgA Nephropathy patients with hematuria, their urine may look like normal color, tea-color, dark organ, dark brown and red.

Besides, you said you have abdominal pain and feel bloated. These discomforts are especially common when IgA Nephropathy develops to advanced stage, but I am not sure if they are caused by IgA Nephropathy, because many conditions can cause these discomforts.

Also, you said you do not urinate frequently, so do you mean you urinate less than normal? Kidney is the natural filter of our body. It helps to purify blood and maintain fluid balance by removing wastes and unwanted fluid out of the body as urine. When kidney function is severely impaired due to IgA Nephropathy, wastes and unwanted fluid can not be removed, as a result of which, urine output decreases.

Apart from dark brown urine, decreased urine output and bloated feeling, IgA Nephropathy also cause many other discomforts. You just told us what symptoms you have and we can not have an overall understanding about your illness condition. I suggest you send you latest test report to igacure@gmail.com. Our experts will help you analyze it and then give you some practical suggestions to help you strengthen kidney and alleviate these symptoms.
