Should I Worry about Strong Urine Smell with IgA Nephropathy

Question: I have IgA Nephropathy. And I seem to be having very strong urine smells. Should I worry about it?

Should I Worry about Strong Urine Smell with IgA NephropathyAnswer: Some IgA Nephropathy patients indeed have such a problem. Now let’s have more information about such a symptom.

Strong urine smell may indicate that your kidneys are severely damaged.

As we all know, kidney is responsible for filtering blood. When blood flows through the kidneys, waste products are filtered out, while useful substances such as red blood cells and protein retains. But because of IgA immune complexes, there is kidney inflammation, which overtime weakens your kidney function. As a result, waste products build up in the blood. And your kidneys will work hard to remove them. If your urine becomes highly concentrated, urine odor may have a strong ammonia smell.

Strong urine smell may indicate that you have the following medical condition.

-Urinary tract infection. Due to the use of steroid and immunosuppressants, your immune system is impaired so that you easily catch infections.

-Metabolic disorder. When your kidneys stop working properly, other body system will also be affected. Metabolic disorder is one of them.

-Type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is a the leading cause of kidney disease. When you urinate, your urine may smell sweet.

-In order to have a good control of your disease, you may have to take various food and medication. They can also affect the odor of urine.

Strong urine smell may indicate your medical condition is improved.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a common used therapy for IgA Nephropathy patients to recover their kidney function. It can decompose immune complexes in the kidneys and discharge them out of the body so as to eliminate kidney inflammation. It can also expand capillaries and block blood clotting to increase blood flow into the kidneys, which improves ischemia and anoxia. Moreover, it can cease kidney fibrosis and further kidney damage. After a period of treatment, you will find that your urine has strong odor and there is floccule in the urine. Besides, your cold limbs, pale skin, poor appetite and so on will also be improved. Those all indicate that your kidneys are self-healing.

Should I worry about strong urine smell with IgA Nephropathy? If you have strong urine smell, you should talk with a doctor to find the underlying causes and then take treatment as early as possible.
