What Are the Complications of IgA Nephropathy

What Are the Complications of IgA NephropathyWhen IgA Nephropathy develops to certain extent, many complications appear. Those complications are negative to your prognosis. What are the complications of IgA Nephropathy? To know the answer helps you have a general knowledge of your medical condition and then you can take preventive treatment early.

-Body malaise

When IgA Nephropathy impairs your kidney function, waste products and toxins build up in the body, which may cause nausea, vomit, poor sleeping quality, poor appetite, skin itch, fatigue, etc. When you have blood urine, you may have low fever, sore muscle, back pain, abdominal pain, etc.

-High blood pressure

One function of kidney is to control blood pressure. With the impairment of kidney function, some IgA Nephropathy patients have high blood pressure. Hypertension leads to arteriosclerosis, worsens proteinuria, speeds up kidney failure and it can also increase your risk of heart disease.


The damaged kidneys can not secrete enough erythropoietin to make red blood cells. Besides, the accumulated wastes also shorten the lifespan of red blood cells. When the amount of red blood cells reduces, anemia occurs. With anemia, you feel weak, cold, shortness of breath, headache, etc.


The weakened kidney function can not remove excess fluid timely. Water retention causes swelling. In the early stage of IgA Nephropathy, swelling may only occur around the eyes. But with the progression, swelling may occur in ankles, legs, or even the whole body.

-Heart failure

Heart failure is a very serious complication of IgA Nephropathy. It is also the main cause of death for kidney patients. It results from high blood pressure, high cholesterol level, etc.

As long as you have the above complications, you should attach importance and take treatment as early as possible. If you would like to learn more information about IgA Nephropathy, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
