Is Kidney Transplant A Good Choice for IgA Nephropathy Patients

Is Kidney Transplant A Good Choice for IgA Nephropathy PatientsKidney transplant is a common used kidney replacement treatment for kidney failure patients. Because it allows the patients to go back a more normal life than dialysis. But is kidney transplant a good choice for IgA Nephropathy patients?

Why kidney failure patients want to do kidney transplant?

Kidney transplant is to put a healthy kidney into your body to take over the damaged kidneys to work. After kidney transplant, there are few diet restrictions and complications. And most people can return to a normal work. That is why kidney failure patients want to do kidney transplant. However, kidney transplant is not suitable for all kidney patients.

Disadvantage of kidney transplant

After kidney transplant, you have to take immunosuppressants to inhibit rejection. Those medicine can lower your immunity so as to expose you to many other diseases, such as cancer, tumor, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. Besides, the transplanted kidney can only survive for several years. Years later you have to look for another kidney to do kidney transplant again. But as we all know, it is very difficult to find a suitable kidney source. Sometimes you have to wait for years.

Kidney transplant is not a good choice for IgA Nephropathy patients.

IgA Nephropathy is associated with abnormal immune system. Kidney transplant recovers your kidney function, but it can not regulate your immune system. After kidney transplant, those IgA immune complexes may deposit in the kidneys again, leading to the recurrence of IgA Nephropathy. Some researches show that the recurrence rate of IgA is as high as 50%. Therefore, you had better improve your own kidney function if you still have urine output.

Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. This therapy can cleanse immune complexes from the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation. It can also block abnormal immune response to reduce the production of immune complexes. Moreover, it can regulate the immune system so as to protect you from various disease. After a period of treatment, your kidney function will improve.
