Is There a 100% Cure for IgA Nephropathy

Is There a 100% Cure for IgA NephropathyIs there a 100% cure for IgA Nephropathy? It is normal for us to be scared or feel frustrated when being told to have IgA Nephropathy, because diagnosis of this illness always indicate high risk for kidney failure. Well, is it possible for us to avoid kidney failure with IgA Nephropathy and is there a 100% cure for IgA Nephropathy?

Before answering this question, let’s learn about what IgA Nephropathy is.

IgA Nephropathy is also called Berger’s disease which is an illness marked by lots of IgA deposition in mesangial area. The full name of IgA is immunoglobulin A, an antibody that can help us fight against harmful substances like bacterium and viruses. In normal cases, large amounts of IgA will be produced to protect us when there is antigen. However, for an individual with IgA Nephropathy, due to immunodeficiency, IgA deposit in mesangial area, leading to extreme inflammatory response. Surrounding kidney tissues are injured easily by the overaction of immuno-inflammatory response, so many IgA Nephropathy patients are prescribed with immunosuppressive agents to control illness condition when being tested with IgA Nephropathy.

Is there a 100% cure for IgA Nephropathy?

Timely application of immunosuppressive agents help to restrain inflammatory response, and help to prevent further kidney damages. However, as these medications can not remove IgA away from mesangial area, inflamamtory response appears again when patients stop taking or reduce the dose of medicine. Therefore, there is no 100% cure at all if this illness is simply treated with immunosuppressive agents.

Immunosuppressive agents play a very important part in the treatment for IgA Nephropathy, but it is combined with Chinese medicine, the treatment effects will be more obvious. What is more, IgA deposited in mesangial area can be removed away little by little with Chinese medicine. The combination of Chinese medicine and immunosuppressive agents can not guarantee a 100% cure, but with them, kidney function and life expectancy can be improved greatly.
