Is That Normal for IgA Nephropathy Stage 3 Patients to Have Shortness of Breath

Is That Normal for IgA Nephropathy Stage 3 Patients to Have Shortness of BreathIn early stage of IgA Nephropathy, you seldom have any symptoms or the symptoms are so slight that you hardly realize them. But in stage 3, many symptoms appear gradually. Is that normal for IgA Nephropathy stage 3 patients to have shortness of breath? If you are suffering from this symptom, the following information may be helpful for you.

Shortness of breath is a common symptom of IgA Nephropathy stage 3.

-Stage 3 IgA Nephropathy means your kidneys are moderately damaged so that they can not secrete enough erythropoietin to make red blood cells. And because of the accumulated waste products, the lifespan of red blood cells is shortened. As a result, there are not enough red blood cells to transplant oxygen. And then it is likely for you to have shortness of breath.

-If your high blood pressure can not be brought under control, shortness of breath occurs as well, because it causes the heart muscles to thicken so that there is less space for the oxygen-rich blood to flow.

Besides, pulmonary edema, metabolic acidosis, side effects of medicine and so on can all give rise to shortness of breath.

How to relieve shortness of breath for patients with IgA Nephropathy stage 3?

If you have shortness of breath frequently, you should talk with your doctor to find out its underlying cause and then take corresponding measures, for example, to improve anemia, to lower blood pressure, to flush out the excess fluid, to change the medications you eat, etc. Besides, it is necessary for you to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease caused by IgA depositing in the kidneys. Immunotherapy can help you remove the cycling immune complexes and inflammatory chemicals so as to reduce kidney inflammation. It can also block abnormal immune reaction and increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes to stop further kidney damage. After a period of treatment, your kidney function will be improved and its associated symptoms will disappear.
