Sinus Infection and IgA Nephropathy

Sinus Infection and IgA NephropathySinus infection is an inflammation of one of the paranasal sinuses, which is usually caused by a viral infection. While IgA Nephropathy is an inflammation of mesangial areas of glomeruli,which is caused by immunoglobulin A deposition. Some people find that they get IgA Nephropathy after getting sinus infection, while some other people find they develop sinus infection after getting IgA Nephropathy. Is there any relationship between them? Now let’s have a look.

From the above brief introduction of sinus infection and IgA Nephropathy, it seems that sinus infection has no relation with IgA Nephropathy. But in fact, sinus infection is a trigger of IgA Nephropathy and IgA Nephropathy also increases your risk of sinus infection.

How does sinus infection trigger IgA Nephropathy?

For some people, their sinus infection does not cause IgA Nephropathy. But for those people with immune deficiency, when virus invade into your body, they body produces antibodies such as IgA to fight against those virus. During this course, immune complexes are produced. Those immune complexes come into the kidneys with blood circulation. Because their structure is abnormal, they can not be removed by kidneys, so they deposit in the kidneys, leading to inflammation.

Why some IgA Nephropathy patients have a high risk of getting sinus infection?

For IgA Nephropathy patients, their inherent immunity is low. And when treating IgA Nephropathy, steroids and immunosuppressants are often used to control proteinuria, but those medications weaken your immune system further. When your immune system is weak, virus invade into your body easily, leading to various infections.

If you want to get rid of sinus infection and IgA Nephropathy, you should strengthen your immune system. Immunotherapy is such a therapy which does not only protect your kidneys from being damaged, but also increase your immunity to fight against diseases. Besides medical treatment, you can do some exercise and adjust diet intake to boost immunity. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
