Hyperparathyroidism and IgA Nephropathy: Causes and Treatment

Hyperparathyroidism and IgA Nephropathy: Causes and TreatmentSome of the IgA Nephropathy patients complain of hyperparathyroidism. What causes hyperparathyroidism and how to treat hyperparathyroidism?

First, let’s have a general knowledge of hyperparathyroidism.

Hyperparathyroidism means that the parathyroid glands are overactive to secrete PTH. PTH helps maintain the correct balance of calcium and phosphorus in the body. And it also regulates the level of calcium in the blood, release of calcium from bone, absorption of calcium in the intestine, and excretion of calcium in the urine. When you have hyperparathyroidism, you may suffer from kidney stone, bone pain, depression, etc.

Second, what causes hyperparathyroidism for IgA Nephropathy patients?

IgA Nephropathy is a kidney disease. If you can not control it in the early stage, it will develop to kidney failure. Due to kidney function impairment, phosphorus can not be removed from the body effectively, resulting in high phosphorus level. Phosphorus and calcium has an inverse relationship. High phosphorus level can cause calcium level decline. And then your body will increase the secretion of PTH to help increase calcium level. Over time, hyperparathyroidism occurs.

Third, how to treat hyperparathyroidism?

Surgery is common to remove the enlarged glands, but it can not solve the problem from the root. Because hyperparathyroidism is closely associated with IgA Nephropathy. It is necessary for you to control your kidney disease.

As we all know, IgA Nephropathy is not only a kidney disease, but also an immune disease. Immunotherapy is recommended to IgA Nephropathy. This therapy can remove IgA and immune complexes from your kidneys, eliminate the kidney inflammation, regulate your abnormal immune system, and improve blood circulation, etc. After a period of time, you will find that there is an improvement in your medical condition. High phosphorus level will gradually come down, and other symptoms also disappear.
