Is It Possible that IgA Nephropathy Becomes Inactive Again for An Post-transplant Patient

Question: I want to seek help about my recurring IgA Nephropathy. I am 8 years post transplant. Now my creatinine level is high again. Is it possible that IgA Nephropathy can become inactive again?

Is It Possible that IgA Nephropathy Becomes Inactive Again for An Post-transplant PatientAnswer: Because kidney transplant can help kidney failure patients get rid of the miserable dialysis and allow you go back to a normal life, it becomes a dream for all kidney patients. But the transplanted kidney can only survive for several years. Some researches show that 85% transplanted kidney can live for 1 year, 60% transplant kidney can live for 5 years and only 1% kidney can live for 10 years. Besides, the recurrence rate of IgA Nephropathy after transplant is as high as 50%. As we can see, you have do transplant for 8 years. Increased creatinine level indicates that the transplanted kidneys do not work properly again. But if you receive treatment early, it is possible for you to preserve your kidney function and avoid dialysis.

Why IgA Nephropathy comes back easily?

The reason why IgA Nephropathy recurs is that IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease. Though the transplanted kidney can take the place of the damaged ones to work, it can not regulate the abnormal immune system. The immune complexes will deposit in the kidneys again when bacteria and virus invades into your body. The deposited immune complexes will cause kidney inflammation, over time leading to kidney function impairment.

Immunotherapy for IgA Nephropathy

Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can block the abnormal immune reaction in the body to avoid producing too much immune complexes. It can also cleanse immune complexes from the kidneys and increase the kidneys’ tolerance to those immune complexes so as to prevent kidney inflammation. Moreover, it can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, your creatinine level will be lowered.
