What Can I Do to Help Regain Kidney Function with IgA Nephropathy

Question: I was told I have IgA Nephropathy back in 2003. I have been taking blood pressure medicine to control it. What can I do to help regain my kidney function?

What Can I Do to Help Regain Kidney Function with IgA NephropathyAnswer: IgA Nephropathy is an immunodeficiency disease, which is caused by IgA depositing in the kidneys. With IgA Nephropathy, you may have blood urine, high blood pressure, proteinuria and some other symptoms.

Control blood pressure to slow down the progression to kidney failure

You said you have been taking blood pressure medicine to control it. It is very good. Antihypertensive like ACEI and ARBs can not only lower blood pressure, but also reduce protein leakage as well as protect kidney function.

Healthy lifestyle to protect the remaining kidney function

Apart from symptom management, you should set up a healthy lifestyle. There goes a saying in China, a chronic disease needs 30 % medical treatment and 70 % nourishment and rest. In the daily, you should follow a renal-friendly diet, such as low protein, low sodium, low fat, high fiber, high vitamins and fish oil. After having a good rest, you should do some gentle exercise to strengthen your immune system, such as walking and jogging.

Kidney transplant to improve kidney function

Kidney transplant is to put a healthy kidney into your body to take the place of the damaged ones to work. After transplant, your kidney function is enhanced. But IgA Nephropathy patients often have a high chance of recurrence. Even if kidney transplant is successful, the transplanted kidney can only survive for several years. Years later, you have to look for another kidney to improve kidney function.

Biotherapy and TCM treatment to help you regain your own kidney function

If you still have some kidney function, the best way is to repair the damaged kidneys and regain your own kidney function. Biotherapy is to inject stem cells into the body and then the stem cells differentiate into renal cells to replace the damaged ones to work. TCM therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, foot bath and circle therapy helps detoxify the blood and remove stasis to improve blood circulation so as to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, TCM therapies can make the whole body harmonious and balanced.

With comprehensive treatment, you regain your own kidney function and then you can live a normal life. If you would like a more professional and personalized guidance on IgA Nephropathy treatment, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
