Does Tonsillectomy Help IgA Nephropathy Patients

Does Tonsillectomy Help IgA Nephropathy PatientsIgA Nephropathy is autoimmune disease characterized by IgA depositing in mesangial area of glomeruli. Clinically, the disease may be punctuated by episodes of macroscopic hematuria or microscopic hematuria. Some IgA Nephropathy patients are asked to do tonsillectomy. Does tonsillectomy help IgA Nephropathy patients?

In the early stage of IgA Nephropathy, tonsillectomy is good for IgA Nephropathy patients.

IgA is a kind of antibody. It deposits in the kidneys, leading to inflammatory reaction. With steroid treatment, kidney inflammation can be suppressed. But infection can cause the increase of IgA in the blood to combine with antigen. During this process, a lot of immune complexes come into being. With blood circulation, immune complexes can come to kidneys and deposit in the kidneys, which can trigger the inflammatory reaction again. Tonsil gets infected easily. Tonsillectomy can reduce the chance of infection so as to reduce the production of immune complexes and inhibit disease progression.

In the advanced stage of IgA Nephropathy, tonsillectomy is useless for IgA Nephropathy patients.

In the advanced stage of IgA Nephropathy, a lot of inflammatory factors and waste remain in the kidneys. Immune complexes caused by tonsillitis drop to a secondary position. Therefore, tonsil removal seldom has any effect on treating IgA Nephropathy.

Alternatives for IgA Nephropathy patients

There are also other alternatives for IgA Nephropathy patients. Immunotherapy is a good choice. It combines with western medicine and Chinese medicine to remove immune complexes and other inflammatory factors from the blood, block abnormal immune reaction and increase the kidneys’ tolerance to the deposited IgA and immune complexes so as to reduce inflammation. Moreover, this therapy can improve kidney function by increasing blood flowing into the kidneys and degrading extracellular matrix. With Immunotherapy, immune system can improve as well.
