IgA Nephropathy and Skin Conditions

IgA Nephropathy and Skin ConditionsIgA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease) is a kind of kidney disorder in which IgA deposit in the glomeruli, causing inflammation and this results in blood and protein appearing in the urine. It does not only impair your kidneys, but also affects other parts of your body. Now let’s have a look at IgA Nephropathy and skin conditions.

IgA Nephropathy can make your skin dry.

As we all know, kidney is responsible for removing waste products from the blood. When your kidneys are damaged, waste products build up in the blood. They can draw fluid from your skin to dilute the high toxin concentration in the blood, which can make your skin dry. They can also make sebaceous gland and sweat gland shrink, which can make your skin dry as well.

IgA Nephropathy can make your skin itchy.

Some of the waste products can irritate your skin, leading to skin itch, such as urea. Besides, high blood phosphorus level can also make you feel itchy.

IgA Nephropathy can make your skin pale.

The damaged kidneys can not secrete enough erythropoietin to stimulate bone marrows to make red blood cells, leading to anemia. Besides, some red blood cells may leak into the urine to worsen anemia. Pale skin is a clinical manifestation of anemia.

IgA Nephropathy can make you have skin rash.

Skin rash is also a common complication of IgA Nephropathy patients. It is usually associated with the accumulated urea nitrogen. When calcium in the blood is high, it may go through sweat glands to deposit in the skin, leading to rashes.

IgA Nephropathy can make your skin conditions poor. As long as you have skin problems, it indicates that your IgA Nephropathy becomes worse and it needs immediate treatment. Immunotherapy can help you regulate the abnormal immune system and restore kidney function. With the help of online doctor, you can learn more information.
