How to Reduce Protein Leakage 1.5 g/d for IgA Nephropathy Patients

How to Reduce Protein Leakage 1.5 g/d for IgA Nephropathy PatientsI have IgA Nephropathy and my protein has increase to 1500 mg a day. How to reduce protein leakage? This question may be concerned by many IgA Nephropathy patients. If you would like to acquire the answer, the following information may be helpful. If you have any other question, please feel free to contact online doctor.

For IgA Nephropathy patients, these deposited immune complexes ( mainly IgA ) are the trigger for inflammatory responses within kidneys. Inflammatory response starts all other pathological changes like cellular proliferation, secretion of extracellular matrix as well as sclerotic of kidney cells. Protein leakage being 1.5 g/d needs to be treated.


For your condition, protein intake should limit to around 0.6 g/kg per day. Milk and lean meat are good source of protein as well as calcium. Just make sure not too much protein intake to add burden on kidneys.

Western medicine

Under normal circumstance, ACEI or ARBs are often given to control proteinuria by lowering kidney internal pressure so as to reduce protein leakage. Steroids like prednisone is also often used to inhibit kidney inflammation so as to control proteinuria. But recent scientific research has made steroid a controversial therapy. Because it increases the risk for infection, which could lead to fatal risk.

Chinese medicine

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), we should not control the symptoms only. It is necessary to solve the problem from the root. IgA Nephropathy is not only a kidney disease, but also an immune disease. When we treat IgA Nephropathy, we regulate the abnormal immune reaction first by Immunotherapy, and then we help the damaged kidneys repair themselves by Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Circle Therapy, Moxibustion, etc. With the treatment, your whole body will become balanced and harmonious. As a result, your protein leakage reduces, and some other symptoms disappear.
