What Cause Frequent Hematuria in IgA Nephropathy

Hematuria means that blood in the urine literally. And hematuria is divided into two categories:microscopic hematuria which describes people can only see blood in urine with microscopes and gross hematuria seen by naked eyes. In general, hematuria in IgA nephropathy occurs in one or two days if it is a nonspecific upper respiratory tract infection. Gross hematuria usually happens in a few days. But microscopic hematuria occurs after a long time. Then, how is hematuria caused by IgA nephropathy? Here we will make a specific introduction for you.

How does IgA Nephropathy cause hematuria?

As for patients with IgA nephropathy, IgA deposits in glomerular mesangial area. IgA which is antibody has properties of defending antigens. Nevertheless, if there is something wrong with IgA, it will build up in glomerular mesangial area. In this situation, body can make an inflammatory reaction to take away IgA, which leads to damage in glomerular mesangial area. As a consequently, red blood cells can leak out from glomeruli and flow away in the urine. In this way, hematuria comes into being.

Apart from hematuria, IgA nephropathy presents as nephrotic syndrome, proteinuria, high blood pressure, etc.

As damage in glomerular mesangial area causes hematuria, repairing damage in glomerular mesangial area is the fundamental way to treat hematuria. On most occasions, steroids are used to treat IgA nephropathy and alleviate its symptoms. The research indicates that after patients with IgA nephropathy experience steroids treatment, proteinuria and hematuria can be alleviated. And if steroids are combined with cyclophosphamide, it is very beneficial for kidney function. However, if patients with IgA Nephropathy stop taking medicines, hematuria will occur again. Chinese medicines have good effects on repairing glomeruli, and there are no side effects on patients with IgA Nephropathy. Besides, Chinese medicines are functional in rebuilding kidney structures and improving kidney function. Thus, Patients with IgA Nephropathy can have a try to treat hematuria by Chinese medicines.

Western medicines and Chinese medicines have views of IgA Nephropathy in different ways. The advantage of Western medicines is that good effects occur in a short time and it focus on treatment for symptoms. Compared with Western medicines, Chinese medicines can treat IgA Nephropathy in view of kidney function and kidney damage , and most of Chinese medicines have no side effects. However, it takes long time that good effects of Chinese medicines can occur for patients with IgA Nephropathy.
