What Can Help with Distended Stomach and Frequent Urination for IgA Nephropathy Patients

Question: My husband has IgA kidney disease for 20 years now. He suffers from extremely large distended stomach and frequent urination. What can help with these symptoms?

What Can Help with Distended Stomach and Frequent Urination for IgA Nephropathy PatientsAnswer: IgA Nephropathy is a kind of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). It usually takes many years to develop to kidney failure. During the course, more and more symptoms appear and those symptoms become more and more severe.

Distended stomach and IgA Nephropathy

A distended stomach is a term usually used to refer to swelling of the abdomen and not of the stomach itself. When your kidneys are severely damaged by IgA Nephropathy, they can not remove the excessive fluid from the blood. If those fluid builds up in the stomach, it may make you have a distended stomach. Besides, massive proteinuria can also make fluid retain in your body, leading to swelling.

In such case, diuretics are often taken to flush out the excessive fluid from the body. If it is associated with massive proteinuria, steroids and immunosuppressants can be used to inhibit kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries to reduce protein leakage.

Frequent urination and IgA Nephropathy

Frequent urination is also a common complaint of IgA Nephropathy patients. It may result from the damage of renal tubule. The damaged renal tubule can not reabsorb fluid into your blood so that you have frequent urination.

In such case, you should repair the damaged kidney tubules and regain its ability to reabsorb the fluid. IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease, so we should start about regulating the abnormal immune system. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. It does not only regulate the immune system, but also cleanse IgA immune complexes from your body to reduce kidney inflammation. Moreover, it can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, IgA Nephropathy associated symptoms disappear and your kidney function will also be restored to certain extent.
