Does IgA Nephropathy Cause Pericarditis

Patients with end stage renal disease run a high risk of pericardial diseases, such as pericarditis and pericardial effusions and occasionally chronic constrictive pericarditis.

As we all know, our kidneys are responsible to remove excess fluid from the body. When your IgA Nephropathy develops to ESRD, the damaged kidneys can not discharge the fluid effectively. In such case, if you drink a lot of fluid, which is beyond the discharge capacity of kidney and then fluid retains in the body. When fluid in the body increases obviously, effective circulating blood volume will increase as well and at the same time, you may have diluted hyponatremia., leading to water intoxication. Its clinical manifestations includes swelling, high blood pressure and pericardial effusion. For IgA Nephropathy patients, their immune system is weak. And the use of steroids and immunosuppressants can make their immunity weaker. As a result, bacteria and virus invade into body easily.
