How to Improve GFR Effectively with IgA Nephropathy

How to improve GFR with IgA Nephropathy? I am sure all the IgA Nephropathy patients want to get the answer, as improvement of GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) always means improvement of kidney function. As long as kidney function is improved effectively, they can live far away from kidney failure which usually needs dialysis or kidney transplant to prolong life span. Well, for an individual who are living with IgA Nephropathy, how to improve his GFR successfully?

Low GFR and IgA Nephropathy

GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) is an important indicator for kidney function. It reflects how many blood can be failtered by 1.73m2 of glomeruli in one minute. Kidney works as a filter and helps to remove toxins and wastes out of the body through urine while filtering blood. Low GFR means blood in the body can not be timely filtered by kidney. Under such a condition, wastes and toxins will build up in the blood, which is very harmful for our internal organs.

IgA Nephropathy is an illness in which large amounts of IgA deposite in mesangial area and thus damage surrounding kidney tissues. At the very begining, only a small part of kidney tissues are injured. Under such a condition, GFR does not decrease at all. However, with the deterioration of illness, much more kidney tissues are injured, leading to the decline of kidney function and GFR.

How to improve GFR with IgA Nephropathy?

In cases of IgA Nephropathy, GFR decreases with the decline of GFR, so if we want to improve GFR successfully, we must firstly improve kidney function.

Both scientific diet (what kind of diet I should be on for IgA Nephrpathy) and healthy living style are necessary for the remission of IgA Nephropathy, but apart from it, the most important is to receive medical treatment that can help to prevent further kidney damages and repair injured kidney intrinsic cells.

Immunotherapy is a treatment for IgA Nephropathy patients to take. This treatment is not simply based on western medicine, but a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. For IgA Nephropathy patients who received this treatment, not only their GFR can be improved successfully, but also their elevated creatinine level can be lowered down.
