What Happens when Your Kidneys Are Working at 40% with IgA Nephropathy

What Happens when Your Kidneys Are Working at 40% with IgA NephropathyIgA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease) impairs your kidney function gradually with time going. What happens when your kidneys are working at 40% with IgA Nephropathy? After reading this article, you will find the answer.

You have a lot of symptoms and complications.

The kidneys are important organs with many functions in the body, including producing hormones, absorbing minerals, and filtering blood and producing urine. When your kidneys are working at 40%, you may have swelling, foamy urine, blood urine, anemia, high blood pressure, bone disease and some other symptoms and complications. Different patients have different medical conditions, so their clinical manifestations are different as well.

Your creatinine level increases.

Creatinine is a kind of waste product passed out of the body by kidneys. It does not increase until more than 50% of kidneys are damaged. Now your kidneys are working at 40%, so there will be a quick increase in creatinine level. Besides, some other waste products in the blood will increase as well, such as urea.

Though your kidneys are severely damaged, it is possible for you to reverse it and lead a normal life.

Kidney function 40% means you are in stage 3. With timely and effective treatment, it is possible to repair the damaged kidneys and promote kidney function. Conventional treatment for IgA Nephropathy is to control blood pressure, eliminate proteinuria and manage some other symptoms to protect your kidneys from being damaged further. But that is not enough. We should remove immune complexes from the damaged kidneys to reduce kidney inflammation. Immunotherapy is a breakthrough in treating IgA Nephropathy. It can help you regulate the abnormal immune system and prevent further kidney damage, so it is worth a try.
