IgA Nephropathy and Lightheadedness

IgA Nephropathy and LightheadednessRecently some IgA Nephropathy patients complain about lightheadedness. What causes lightheadedness for IgA Nephropathy patients? How to deal with lightheadedness for IgA Nephropathy patients? If you would like to know the answer, please go on reading.

In fact, IgA Nephropathy does not cause lightheadedness directly, but it may be associated with the symptoms caused by IgA Nephropathy.

Causes of lightheadedness

-Lightheadedness may be associated with anemia.

Anemia is usually caused by kidney function impairment. The damaged kidneys can not release enough erythropoetin to stimulate the bone marrows to form red blood cells. Besides, the accumulated waste shortens the lifespan of red blood cells. As a result, there are not enough red blood cells to transport oxygen. Due to lack of oxygen in the brain, you have lightheadedness.

-Lightheadedness may be associated with high blood pressure.

High blood pressure is a common symptom of IgA Nephropathy patients. It can cause lightheadedness as well.

-Side effects of medication

IgA Nephropathy patients have to eat a lot of medications to control their symptoms. These medications have various side effects if you use them for a long time. Lightheadedness may be one of them.

In addition, flu or colds and lack of sleep can also lead to lightheadedness.

Treatment for lightheadedness

Lightheadedness usually does not need any treatment, but the underlying cause should be treated as early as possible.

-Anemia can be treated by EPO or iron supplement.

-High blood pressure can be treated by ACE inhibitors, ARBs, CCB, diuretics, etc.

The most important thing is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function, then all the problems can be solved. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine, which can regulate the immune system so as to help you fight against kidney disease.
