How To Improve GFR With IgA Nephropathy

How To Improve GFR With IgA NephropathyGFR is the abbreviation of Glomerular Filtration Rate which is one of the important factors to reflect how well the kidney function works. Normally, the range of GFR is about 90-120mL/min/1.73m2. But for IgA Nephropathy patients, they usually have low GFR, which troubles them for a long time. Here, many patients may ask: how to improve GFR with IgA nephropathy effectively? Now, follow us and try to find the answer.

For people with IgA nephropathy, kidney failure is diagnosed when GFR decreases to 15. In this case, dialysis or kidney transplant will be suggested to purify blood when GFR decreases to a certain level, so improving GFR will help patients get far away from dialysis or kidney transplant as soon as possible. To be honest, compared with kidney transplant, as we all know that dialysis can not improve GFR with IgA nephropathy from the root. Although kidney transplant is a good choice to improve GFR with IgA nephropathy, the high costs and low survival rate often trouble many families.

How to improve GFR with IgA nephropathy naturally?

For a IgA nephropathy patient, improvement of GFR can be achieved by increasing blood flow in kidney and repairing damages to enlarge the area of filtration membrane. Glomerular filtration membrane is composed of several kidney intrinsic cells and a basilar membrane which have self-repairing ability when they are damaged. However, when the damage is out of their self-repairing ability, they will die and area of filtration membrane reduces. Therefore, we can adopt some measures to increase the self-repairing ability of them, thus improve GFR with IgA nephropathy. At present, Chinese herbal medicines are always applied to increase the immunity of these damaged renal intrinsic cells in clinic. As long as GFR is improved effectively, IgA nephropathy patients have chance to avoid dialysis or kidney transplant.
