Is There A Possibility to Escape from Kidney Transplant with IgA Nephropathy

Question: Hi, sir. I am suffering from IgA Nephropathy. Recently I did a test. Result report shows creatinine of 6 and kidney is shrunken. So doctor advised me to transplant the kidney. Is there a possibility to escape from kidney transplant? Help me.

Is There A Possibility to Escape from Kidney Transplant with IgA NephropathyAnswer: When creatinine is as high as 6, kidney replacement treatment is needed. Dialysis and transplant are the common used kidney replacement treatment. Relatively speaking, transplant is preferred, because there are not so many diet restrictions after transplantation and you can live a normal life. But it takes a lot of money and time to do a transplant. After a transplant, you have to live on immunosuppressants to prevent rejection. This kind of medicine has many side effects if used for long-term. Besides, the transplanted kidney can only survive several years. Years later, you have to do another transplant. For IgA Nephropathy patients, they have a high recurrence rate after transplant. The above causes may refrain you from doing transplant.

Though your creatinine level is far beyond the normal range (0.5-1.2 mg/dL), it does not mean you have to do transplant.There is possibility to escape from it. IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease associated with IgA immune complexes depositing in the kidneys. Therefore, treatment for IgA Nephropathy is to decompose immune complexes in the kidney rather than only inhibit their inflammatory response. Because you are in end stage renal failure, you need a systemic treatment to control the disease.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a common used TCM treatment to cleanse immune complexes from the kidneys. It can also dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to increase blood flow into the kidneys so as to improve the shrunken kidneys. Medicated Bath is also often used to draw toxins from the body, which helps reduce their damage to the kidneys. Mai Kang and decoction are oral medications to reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol level, and prevent heart disease.

After a period of systemic treatment, your kidneys can regain part function and creatinine level comes down. In such case, you can get rid of dialysis and transplant. If you really want to escape from kidney transplant with IgA Nephropathy, early treatment is needed. When your blood creatinine level is very high, no treatment can help you survive your own kidneys.
