What Can I Do for the Swelling with Stage 3 IgA Nephropathy

Question: Swelling in legs is getting worse. I have stage 3 IgA Nephropathy. What can I do for the swelling?

What Can I Do for the Swelling with Stage 3 IgA NephropathyAnswer: IgA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease) has remained the most common form of primary glomerulonephritis in the world. It is caused by immunoglobulin A deposited in the kidneys. Swelling is a clinical sign of IgA Nephropathy.

As you said, your IgA Nephropathy is in stage 3, which means your kidneys are not severely damaged. It is likely for you to reverse the disease with immediate treatment. What other symptoms do you have now?

-Do you have massive foamy urine? If you have, your swelling may be associated with it. Because when lots of protein leak into urine, plasma albumin decreases so that plasma colloid osmotic pressure declines and then fluid in blood vessels flows into space tissues, leading to swelling. In such case, steroids and immunosuppressants are helpful for you to eliminate proteinuria and swelling.

-If you do not have severe proteinuria, your swelling may be associated with water and sodium retention, because the damaged kidneys can not remove excess fluid and sodium from the blood. In such case, you should limit the intake of water and salt. Besides, you can use water pills to remove fluid from the body.

The fundamental way to reduce swelling is to receive a comprehensive treatment to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Composition and Medical Soup) can help you block kidney inflammation and cease kidney fibrosis so as to stop further kidney damage. They can also set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing so as to regain kidney function. Moreover, they can strengthen immune system to help you fight against the disease.

What treatment does you receive now with stage 3 IgA Nephropathy? No matter you receive our treatment or not, you should be hospitalized to relieve swelling quickly. Only in this way can you control your IgA Nephropathy so as to prevent kidney failure. We are always happy to help you.
