Is That Normal for IgA Nephropathy Patients to Have Progressively Worsened Edema

Is That Normal for IgA Nephropathy Patients to Have Progressively Worsened Edema Edema is a common symptom of IgA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease). In the early stage, it may just appear in the loose tissues such as eyelid or face in the morning and disappear in the afternoon. With the progression of IgA Nephropathy, edema spreads to other parts of your body. Is that normal for IgA Nephropathy patients to have progressively worsened edema?

Progressively worsened edema indicates that your IgA Nephropathy is getting worse.

Kidney is the main organ to help body rid of excess fluid. When your GFR declines due to IgA Nephropathy, while your renal tubules still work well to reabsorb fluid and sodium, it is likely for you to have edema. Besides, when massive protein leaks into urine, plasma colloid osmotic pressure reduces so that fluid shifts to the tissue space, leading to edema.

How to deal with edema associated with IgA Nephropathy?

When you have edema, your doctor may prescribe water pills to flush out the excess fluid from your body. If those medications do not work well, you may need to supplement protein into blood to restore plasma colloid osmotic pressure and you should also take steroids or other immunosuppressants to inhibit kidney inflammation and stop protein leakage. Besides, you should repair the damaged kidneys and promote kidney function. Immunotherapy is a good choice for IgA Nephropathy patients, because it can help you eliminate kidney inflammation by cleansing immune complexes in the blood and decomposing immune complexes deposited in the kidneys. This therapy can also regulate the abnormal immune system and set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. All in all, it can help you discharge the excessive fluid from the blood to make edema under control and restore your kidney function gradually.

Is that normal for IgA Nephropathy patients to have progressively worsened edema? No, it is abnormal. As long as you have such a symptom, importance should be attached. If you still have any questions about IgA Nephropathy, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
