Should I Take Any Medicine to Reduce Blood in Urine with IgA Nephropathy

Should I Take Any Medicine to Reduce Blood in Urine with IgA NephropathyBlood urine is a typical symptom of IgA Nephropathy. Should I take any medicine to reduce blood in urine with IgA Nephropathy? Not a few patients can not help asking such a question. Go on reading, you will find the answer.

Why IgA Nephropathy patients often have blood in urine?

IgA is an antibody. When your digestive tract gets infected, your body will secrete a lot of IgA to help you fight against bacteria and virus so as to reduce their damage to your body. With blood circulation, they flow into kidneys and deposit in the mesangial area of glomeruli, leading to kidney inflammation. Inflammation can increase the permeability of capillaries so that red blood cells can go out of the body, leading to blood urine.

Treatment to reduce blood in urine for IgA Nephropathy

When you have blood in urine, you should have a good rest on bed and avoid strenuous activity. If you do not have severe swelling, you should drink plenty of water. This can increase urine output so as to prevent blood clotting in the bladder. In some cases, tonsillectomy may reduce the frequency of blood urine, but not all patients have to do such a operation. Generally speaking, blood urine gradually disappears in few days even if you leave it alone.

To block kidney inflammation, steroids and other immunosuppressants are often prescribed. But they have many side effects and they can not treat IgA Nephropathy from the root. Immunotherapy is a breakthrough in treating IgA Nephropathy. It can cleanse the cycling immune complexes and inflammatory chemicals from the blood to reduce kidney inflammation. It can also block abnormal immune reaction and increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes. Moreover, it can strengthen your immune system to stop bacteria and virus entering into your body. With the improvement of kidney function, blood in urine and some other symptoms associated with IgA Nephropathy will disappear.
