Lifespan for IgA Nephropathy with 20% Kidney Function

Lifespan for IgA Nephropathy with 20% Kidney FunctionWhat is the lifespan for an individual with IgA Nephropathy when only 20% of his kidney function is left? IgA Nephropathy patients usually care more about how long they can live than normal people, as IgA Nephropathy is a very life-threatening illness when develops to advanced stage. For these with 20% kidney function, most of their kidney tissues have been damaged, so many of them believe they live a shorter life. For this reason, they are very eager to know how long they can live.

Actually 20% kidney function is strong enough to help IgA Nephropathy patients maintain their life without dialysis, but they usually experience lots of discomforts like nausea, vomiting, skin itching, tiredness, sleep problem and so on. These symptoms are always very torturous. Under such a circumstance, without effective treatment, kidney condition becomes worser and worser and they may thus suffer from many deadly complications like heart failure. However, under such a circumstance, if a systematic treatment is given, kidney function can be improved to be more than 20%. In that case, not only all the symptoms can be alleviated fundamentally, their lifespan can be prolonged successfully. In other words, as long as all their residual kidney function is protected well, they can live as long as they should be.

Medical treatment is the number one factor that affects the lifespan of IgA Nephropathy patients. In some cases, patients are just prescribed with oral medications that can help them control their symptoms like hematuria, proteinuria and high blood pressure. These medicines are very helpful, but as they can not repair injured kidney function, illness keeps progressing slowly. Under such a condition, if patients unfortunately suffer from risky factor like infection, their illness will progress quickly and also they may lose their life in short-term. Therefore, for IgA Nephropathy patients with 20% kidney function, they need to know well about how to treat their illness from the root, so as to prevent further deterioration. Only in this way, can they live a longer and better life.
