What Does It Mean with Kidney Function 17% and IgA Nephropathy

What Does It Mean with Kidney Function 17% and IgA Nephropathy“I have IgA Nephropathy. Recently my kidney function declines to 17%. What does it mean?” Some IgA Nephropathy patients have the similar doubt, so let’s discuss about it together in this article.

IgA Nephropathy impairs your kidney function.

IgA Nephropathy is caused by Immunoglobulin A lodging in the mesangial area of glomeruli. In order to cleanse them, your body will launch inflammatory response. Short-term inflammation is good for your health, but long-term inflammation damages the mesangial areas so that protein and red blood cells which should be retained in your body leak into the urine. Without effective treatment, the inflammatory area will be fibrotic and then lose their function.

How to improve kidney function 17% for IgA Nephropathy patients?

The most common used treatment for IgA Nephropathy is just to control the symptoms by western medicines, such as ACEI, ARBs and steroids. These medicines can relieve your body malaise and protect kidney function, they can not repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function, because they just suppress the inflammatory response in the kidneys rather than remove immune complexes from the kidneys.

Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. This therapy can cleanse immune complexes from the blood. It can also block inflammatory response in the kidneys and increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so as to prevent kidney inflammation. Moreover, it can improve blood circulation and supplement essential nutrients to help kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, your kidney function is promoted.

With kidney function 17%, you may have much body malaise so that dialysis or kidney transplant is needed to prolong your life. If you want to avoid dialysis and kidney transplant, you should receive treatment as early as possible to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function.
