Can I Do Anything to Prevent Kidney Transplant with IgA Nephropathy

Question: In 1990, I was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy. In February 2014, my kidney function was 39%, but now it is only 24%. My doctors want me to do transplant in March. Can I do anything to prevent this? I am 44 years.

Can I Do Anything to Prevent Kidney Transplant with IgA Nephropathy

Answer: Your kidney function is only 24 %, which means you are going to end stage renal disease. And you have to receive kidney replacement treatment to prolong your life. For some patients, kidney transplant is a good choice, because it allows them to go back to a normal life. But for IgA Nephropathy patients, kidney transplant is not a good choice, because the recurrent rate of IgA Nephropathy after transplant is as high as 50%. If you really want to prevent kidney transplant, you should receive comprehensive treatment as early as possible to revive some kidney tissues and improve kidney function.

Because of immune system disorder, IgA which should fight against bacteria and virus lodges in the kidneys, leading to kidney inflammation at first, which over time can cause kidney function impairment. Therefore, the comprehensive treatment should aim at strengthening immune system, cleansing IgA deposition and some other waste, blocking the abnormal immune reaction, and repairing the damaged kidneys. External therapies like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Full Bath, Enema Therapy, Circle Therapy, Steam Therapy and Moxibustion can help you achieve the goal. But you also need oral Chinese medicines, such as Mai Kang and decoction. Because most of your kidney tissues have been dead, it may need a long time to regulate your body and recover part of kidney function. But as long as you stick to the comprehensive treatment, you can see the gradual improvement in your medical condition.

There is only a brief introduction to the medical treatment. You should also pay attention to other aspects, such as diet and exercise. If you would like a personalized treatment plan, please contact online doctor. You are still young. Do not lose the chance to restore your kidney function and live a normal life.
