Can IgA Nephropathy Cause Hair Loss

Can IgA Nephropathy Cause Hair LossCan  IgA Nephropathy cause hair loss? Recently, some IgA Nephropathy patients complained to us that they are suffering from serious hair loss now. What is worse, some others even worry they will become bald someday as they may lose more than 150 hairs one time. They wonder to know whether this serious condition is related with IgA Nephropathy or in other words, can IgA Nephropathy cause hair loss?

Generally speaking, hair loss is usually related with hair follicle or great loss of trace elements. Therefore, IgA nephropathy usually does not cause hair loss. Since hair loss is not a symptom of IgA Nephropathy, but it does not mean patients will certainly suffer no hair loss. There are a couple of reasons may lead to hair loss in IgA Nephropathy patients:

1. Side effects of some medicines

For example, immunosuppressive agents are commonly used to avoid further kidney damage for IgA nephropathy. But unfortunately, this kind of drug can disturb our immune system and thus cause hair loss directly.

2. Malnutrition

Generally speaking, loss of vitamin and protein, dietary limitation, zinc deficiency, etc, all of these situations may lead to hair loss for IgA nephropathy patients.

If you are not sure what kind of situation you belong to, please to do a whole body test in a professional kidney disease hospital or chat with our online doctors for free help, we will try our best to help you.

After knowing the reasons, choosing a right treatment is very essential for IgA nephropathy patients.

As we all know that IgA nephropathy is an autoimmune disease which is marked by accumulation of immune complexes( mainly IgA immune complex ) in the mesangial area. But to alleviate or even eliminate hair loss in IgA nephropathy forever, Immunotherapy + Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has been proved to be the most effective so far.

If you would like to know the details, feel free to contact us as soon as possible, our experts will answer for you carefully.
