IgA Nephropathy with Continued Hematuria and Proteinuria: What to Do

Question: 5 year old kid with viral upper respiratory tract infection with subsequent hematuria & proteinuria. Continued hematuria & proteinuria for 2 weeks. Physician diagnosis is IgA Nephropathy. What to do?

IgA Nephropathy with Continued Hematuria & Proteinuria: What to DoAnswer: IgA Nephropathy (also known as Berger’s Disease) is a kind of immune dysfunction disease. When the immunity of a person declines( which means the immunity is unable to eliminate the virus or bacteria in a short time), meanwhile the person is invaded by virus or bacteria, the body is then stimulated to produce antibody( IgA molecular with abnormal structure) which will combine the antigens to form immune complex. The immune complex is likely to combine with conjugated proteins in the mesangial cells to form a new complex. The new complex will in turn lead to hyperplasia of mesangial cells and activation of inflammatory factors which cause shortage of blood supply and oxygen supply to the kidneys so that the mesangial cells will be damaged, leading to IgA Nephropathy. Its typical symptom is blood urine after infections. Proteinuria may also occur in some cases.

Treatment for IgA Nephropathy with continued hematuria and proteinuria

Conventional treatment is to start steroids or immunosuppressants and fish oil to inhibit kidney inflammation so as to reduce proteinuria and hematuria. This is only stopgap measure. If you want to treat this disorder from the root, you should regulate the abnormal immune system and repair kidney damage. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, systemic Chinese medicine treatment is usually used. For example, Toxin-Removing Treatment. It takes advantage of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Mixture and oral Chinese medicine to expel waste products including immune complexes from kidneys and blood, making internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to supply them with enough essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. Besides, it can regulate the abnormal immune system and strengthen your immunity to fight against the disease. After about one week’s treatment, you will see floccules in urine. After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria and hematuria will get relieved. After about one month’s treatment, kidney function will be improved gradually.

Continued proteinuria and hematuria can cause damage to kidneys and are not good for prognosis. If you can not find out an effective treatment in the local, welcome to our hospital. For more information on IgA Nephropathy treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
