Creatinine 4.2 and IgA Nephropathy: What Should I Do to Save My Kidneys

Question: I am an IgA Nephropathy patient with creatinine 4.2. What should I do to save my kidneys? Thanks a lot.

Creatinine 4.2 and IgA Nephropathy: What Should I Do to Save My KidneysAnswer: Creatinine 4.2 is higher than the normal creatinine range (0.5-1.2 mg/dL), which means your kidneys are severely damaged. What you should do is to lower creatinine 4.2 and protect the remaining kidney function.The following information may be helpful for you.

You should prevent infections.

Infection is a cause of relapse of IgA Nephropathy. After infections, IgA Nephropathy patients often have blood urine, which speeds up kidney failure. Therefore, you should put on clothes or take off clothes to prevent cold. You should also keep you skin clean to prevent skin infection.

You should follow a renal-friendly diet.

A renal-friendly diet does not only provide the essential nutrients for your body, but also helps you control symptoms. For example, a low protein diet helps you lower urea level and reduce protein leakage. A low salt diet helps control blood pressure and relieve swelling. A high vitamin diet boosts your immune system to protect you from aliments, such as cold and infections.

You should have a good rest.

With IgA Nephropathy, you should avoid overwork. Because when you feel very tired, your immunity lowers so that your body is easily invaded by bacteria and virus. But you can still do some gentle exercise, such as walking, yoga, tai chi, jogging, etc. They can strengthen your immune system, lower cholesterol level, reduce blood pressure, boost your energy, improve sleeping quality, etc.

You should choose a correct treatment for IgA Nephropathy.

Conventional treatment for IgA Nephropathy is to control symptoms. That is not enough. You should block abnormal immune reaction to reduce the production of immune complexes. You should also cleanse immune complexes from the kidneys to reduce their deposition in kidneys. Besides, you should increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes to reduce inflammation. And you should improve blood circulation to help kidney self-healing. Immunotherapy can help you achieve all the goals.

What you should do to save your kidneys is to combine all the above aspects together. Only in this way can you lower creatinine 4.2 and avoid dialysis.
