What Can I Do to Slow the Progression of IgA Nephropathy

Question: I have IgA Nephropathy. My creatinine is elevated to 3.1 right now. I have anemia and blood pressure issue also. I want to know what can I do to slow the progression of my kidney disease.

What Can I Do to Slow the Progression of IgA NephropathyAnswer: From the elevated creatinine, we can see that your kidney disease is worsening and there is less than 50% kidney function. According to the GFR, IgA Nephropathy is usually divided into five stage, I think you are maybe in stage 3. In the following, there are some suggestions for you to slow the progression of kidney disease. The personalized treatment plan should be made according to your medical test report. Please send the report to igacure@gmail.com.

Lower high blood pressure

High blood pressure is a symptom of IgA Nephropathy. Without effective treatment, it does not only cause further damage to the kidneys, but also increases the risk of heart disease. Therefore, you should control blood pressure as early as possible. The most common used drugs may be ACEI, ARB, CCB, diuretics, etc.

Reduce creatinine level

Creatinine is a waste product. Too much creatinine building up in the blood also affects kidney function. In diet, you should limit the intake of meat. You should also avoid strenuous exercise to reduce muscle contraction. These two ways help you reduce creatinine level to certain extent.

Relieve anemia

Anemia is also very common among kidney patients. It means there are not enough red blood cells to transport oxygen, which may cause ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys so as to further impair kidney function. To take erythropoetin and iron supplement may help you relieve anemia.

Repair the damaged kidneys

Though the above ways can help you slow the progression of IgA Nephropathy, but that is not enough. What you should do is to repair the damaged kidneys to stop the progression and then you can live a normal life. Because IgA Nephropathy is auto immune disease, we should set about regulating the immune system. Immunotherapy may be a good choice for you. When the damaged kidneys are repaired, high blood pressure and creatinine level will come down and anemia will also be improved.

With the help of online doctor, you can learn more information about ways to slow the progression of IgA Nephropathy.
