Is It Enough to Control Blood Pressure with IgA Nephropathy

Patient: I am suffering from albumin trace in urine for the last 20 years. Now the blood pressure has increased to 140/90. I was diagnosed as IgA Nephropathy patient and my age is 49 years. Is it enough to control blood pressure for this disease at present at present as there is no cure for IgA Nephropathy?

Is It Enough to Control Blood Pressure with IgA NephropathyDoctor: As for your question if it is enough to control blood pressure in IgA Nephropathy, I am afraid the answer is no. Yes, at present there is no cure, because dead kidney tissues can not be brought back to life again, but by repairing injured kidney tissues, kidney function can be increased. Keeping blood pressure in normal range helps to slow down illness progression, but it can not repair kidney damages at all. In such a case, IgA Nephropathy progresses to kidney failure stage eventually and dialysis is required sooner or later.

In IgA Nephropathy, controlling blood pressure is necessary, but it is the only thing you can do. Then, what you can do besides tight control of blood pressure?

IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease in which kidney tissues are damaged by severe inflammation in kidney. Inflammation is caused by IgA deposition in mesangial area. So if you want to avoid kidney failure and control your illness the best, you need to:

-Normalize immune system, so as to avoid new IgA deposition in kidney.

-Remove IgA deposition in kidney and blood.

-Block inflammation to stop further kidney damages

-Repair injured kidney tissues to increase kidney function

-Protect and strengthen residual kidney tissues

By doing as the above mentioned, not only dialysis can be avoided, all the physical discomforts or symptoms caused by IgA Nephropathy like high blood pressure can be alleviated fundamentally and permanently.
