How Does Ammonia Build up in An IgA Nephropathy Patient

How Does Ammonia Build up in An IgA Nephropathy PatientAmmonia is a colorless inorganic compound of nitrogen and hydrogen with the formula NH3. It is poisonous. When it is very high in body, it can stimulate your stomach, leading to nausea, vomiting, metallic taste and some other symptoms. In severe cases, it can cause death. For some IgA Nephropathy patients, their amount of ammonia in the blood is very high. How does ammonia build up in an IgA Nephropathy patient? After reading this article, you will find the answer.

Ammonia is associated with high BUN level.

When blood flows through kidneys, waste products are filtered out of the body. When your kidneys are damaged by IgA Nephropathy, waste products begin to accumulate in the blood. Urea is such a kind of waste product of protein. When blood urea nitrogen (BUN) level is very high, urease in the intestinal tract can decompose it into ammonia. This condition becomes worse when you get up in the morning, because frequent urination at night makes hemoconcentration.

How to prevent ammonia building up in the body for IgA Nephropathy patients?

From the above information, we can draw a conclusion that to prevent ammonia building up in the body, we should prevent BUN from going too high. And to prevent high BUN, we should limit the intake of protein. Restricted protein intake is also good for you to reduce protein leakage. When you follow a low protein diet, you can use Ketosteril to supplement the essential amino acids.

But the fundamental way is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease, so we should set about regulating the abnormal immune system. We should also cleanse the IgA immune complexes and inflammatory chemicals from the blood to reduce kidney inflammation. Besides, we should block the abnormal immune reaction in the kidneys and increase the kidney’s tolerance to immune complexes to prevent further kidney damage. Immunotherapy is such a therapy that can help you achieve these goals. After a period of treatment, your kidney function will be promoted. And then urea can be removed out of the body and ammonia level will go down as well.
