Side Effects of High Phosphorus in IgA Nephropathy

Side Effects of High Phosphorus in IgA NephropathyWith the development of IgA Nephropathy, it is likely for patients to suffer from high phosphorus level. High phosphorus level can cause many side effects. Now in the article, let’s have a quick look.

Why IgA Nephropathy causes high phosphorus level?

IgA Nephropathy is the most common form of glomerulonephritis in the world. In the early stage of IgA Nephropathy, it does not impair your kidney function. But without timely and effective treatment, it can decrease your kidney function so that waste products can not be discharged out of the body. The output of phosphorus reduces, while the intake of phosphorus does not change. That is why your phosphorus level gradually increases with kidney function impairment.

Side effects of high phosphorus in IgA Nephropathy

High phosphorus level can stimulate your skin, leading to skin itch. It can also draw calcium from your bones to make your bones fragile, leading to osteoporosis, bone pain, and some other bone disease. Calcium and phosphate can be deposited in tissues, leading to some severe complications, such as heart failure.

How to lower high phosphorus level for IgA Nephropathy patients?

If your phosphorus level is very high, you may have to do dialysis to cleanse the blood and reduce its side effects. Sometimes you should optimize dialysis, because it is not an effective way to cleanse phosphorus. In some slight cases, you can also take medication, such as phosphate binder, which can combine phosphate in the food and prevent it from absorbing into your blood. Besides, you should limit the intake of food high in phosphorus, such as nut.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are many therapies to help you cleanse the blood and lower phosphorus level, such as Medicated Foot Bath, Medicated Full Bath, Circle Therapy, Steam Therapy, Mai Kang Composition, etc. Those therapies can also help repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. With the improvement of kidney function, your phosphorus level will go down as well.
