What Shall I Do to Avoid Losing Protein with IgA NephropathyBlood urine and protein urine are the most typical symptoms of IgA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease). What shall I do to avoid losing protein with IgA Nephropathy?

Follow a low protein diet

The damaged kidneys like a sieve. The more protein you consume, the more protein leaks out. Therefore, you had better limit the intake of protein. But it does not mean you should avoid protein intake. Moderate high quality protein intake is necessary for you to satisfy the need of body.

Use steroids, immunosuppressants or some other western medicines

If your proteinuria is not that severe, you can use ACEI or ARBs to lower blood pressure and reduce protein leakage as well as preserve your kidney function. Steroids and immunosuppressants are also the common used drugs, which can block kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to reduce proteinuria. Those drugs can help you stop proteinuria quickly, but they have many side effects and proteinuria can only be controlled temporarily.

Use Traditional Chinese Medicine to repair the damaged kidneys

Proteinuria results from damaged kidneys. To eliminate protein from the urine permanently, you should repair the damaged kidneys. IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease resulting from IgA immune complexes depositing in the mesangial area of glomeruli. Therefore, treatment for IgA Nephropathy should aim at regulating your immune system, blocking kidney inflammation and cleansing immune complexes from the kidneys. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine, which can help you achieve all the goals. After a period of treatment, you can avoid losing protein.
