Could Lightheadedness Be Related to IgA Nephropathy

Could Lightheadedness Be Related to IgA Nephropathy“I was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy. Recently I feel lightheaded. Could lightheadedness be related to IgA Nephropathy?” This is not a personalized problem, so in the following article, let’s have a look together.

IgA Nephropathy can cause lightheadedness.


Anemia is a common complication of IgA Nephropathy. With the progression of IgA Nephropathy, anemia will become worse and worse, because the damaged kidneys can not secrete enough erythropoietin to stimulate bone marrows to make red blood cells. And the accumulated waste products also affect the production of red blood cells. When there are not enough red blood cells to transplant oxygen and blood to brain, it is likely for you to have lightheadedness.

-High blood pressure

High blood pressure is also very common among IgA Nephropathy patients. it can increase the beat rhythm of cerebral artery so as to impact the brain tissue, which can cause lightheadedness.

-Side effects of medications

In order to stabilize IgA Nephropathy, you should take various medications. For example, steroids, immunosuppressants, ACEI, ARBs, diuretics, etc. Those medications have side effects more or less. Your lightheadedness may be a side effect of them.

As long as you have lightheadedness, you should talk with your doctor to find out its cause and then take corresponding treatment. But the fundamental way is to resume your kidney function. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine, which can help you cleanse the cycling immune complexes from the blood to reduce their deposition in the kidneys. It can also block the abnormal immune reaction in the body to reduce the production of immune complexes. Besides, it can increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so that even if there are immune complexes, they do not cause inflammation. After a period of treatment, symptoms associated with IgA Nephropathy will disappear and your kidney function will improve.
