10% Kidney Function and IgA Nephropathy: Ways to Avoid Dialysis

Question: I have IgA Nephropathy and just landed on your site, curious. I am on dialysis now, but would there be anything you could do now, or is it too late? I still have maybe 10% function.

10% Kidney Function and IgA Nephropathy: Ways to Avoid DialysisAnswer: I am very sorry to hear that you have only 10 % kidney function, but it is still possible for you to get rid of dialysis if you take treatment now. As we all know, dialysis is just a way to prolong your life rather than a treatment for kidney failure and long-term dialysis can make you lose the remaining kidney function. Therefore, if you want to improve kidney function, dialysis is not a good choice.

Brief analysis of your state of illness

10% kidney function means most of your kidney tissues have been dead, but there is still 10% kidney tissues are working. Among the 10% kidney tissues, some are intact and some are impaired. What we should do now is to protect the intact ones from being damaged and gradually repair the impaired ones. Our body has immense self-healing ability. When the impaired ones regain their ability, your kidney function can increase to certain extent.

Way to improve kidney function and avoid dialysis

Dialysis is to filter waste and excess fluid from the blood, but it is not enough, because it can only remove the micromolecule ones, while the macromolecule and medium ones are still in the blood. They can also cause damage to the kidneys. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we develop a set of Blood Purification Therapy, which combines western medicine therapies like plasma exchange, immune absorption and blood perfusion with Traditional Chinese medicine therapies such as medicated bath, enema therapy and moxibustion. They can not only cleanse the waste in the blood, but also the stasis adhered to the blood vessels. When the blood environment is clean, the kidney tissues can live very well. Besides, we supplement the essential elements such as amino acids and vitamins for kidney tissues to repair themselves. Moreover, biotherapy may be needed to strengthen the kidney function.

Because the waste products keep forming, you should receive this treatment for a period of time until your kidney function improves to deal with the waste in the blood. During the treatment process, the immune complexes can be removed and immune system is strengthened. As a result, you can live very well with IgA Nephropathy.
