How IgA Nephropathy causes electrolyte disorder?

As we all known, kidney is an organ responsible for filtering the blood. The waste products and excessive fluid in blood can be removed out of the body, while the useful substances such as protein and red blood cells are retained in the body.

Besides blood purification, kidney has many other functions, one of which is to regulate electrolytes in the blood. Excessive fluid and electrolytes in the blood can be filtered into initial urine. When they flow through renal tubule, they can be reabsorbed according to certain proportion. At the same time, some electrolytes are transported to lumen. With IgA Nephropathy, some of your glomeruli become inflamed. Without effective treatment, those glomeruli may die so as to impair your kidney function to regulate electrolytes.

How to deal with electrolyte disorder for IgA Nephropathy patients?

Electrolyte disorder can be eased by adjusting your diet. For example, if your blood potassium level is high, you should limit the intake of food high in potassium, such as bananas. If you blood phosphorus level is high, you should restrict the intake of food high in phosphorus, such as nuts. In severe cases, you have to undergo dialysis to regulate it.

But no matter diet or dialysis can only help you regulate electrolytes temporarily. If you want to recover from it, you should repair the damaged kidneys and improve their function to regulate electrolytes. IgA Nephropathy is autoimmune disease. Immunotherapy can help you regulate the abnormal immune system. It can also cleanse the cycling immune complexes in the blood and decompose the deposited immune complexes in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation. After a period of treatment, symptoms associated with IgA Nephropathy will be under control. Why you have electrolyte disorder in IgA Nephropathy?
