Can IgA Nephropathy Patients with High Creatinine Survive without Dialysis

Can A IgA Nephropathy Patient with High Creatinine Survive withouCan a IgA Nephropathy patient with high creatinine level survive without dialysis? IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease with intermittent or persistent blood in urine. It causes no elevation on serum creatinine level and also has no requirement of dialysis. However, if it is treated improperly or left alone, it will develop to kidney failure finally. In that case, creatinine level in blood becomes very high and also dialysis is usually needed to purify blood. Well, is dialysis a must for IgA Nephropathy? Can a patient with high creatinine level survive without dialysis?

How does dialysis help with IgA Nephropathy and high creatinine level?

Dialysis is needed by IgA Nephropathy patients when their creatinine level in blood becomes very high, because elevated serum creatinine not only indicates impairment of kidney function, but also means high levels of toxins in the blood. In early stage of IgA Nephropathy, most of the kidney function is preserved, so only less toxins build up in the blood. In that case, there is no need for dialysis. However, with progression of illness, more and more toxins which should be excreted through kidney accumulate in the body. Under such a circumstance, dialysis is needed to clear them away from the body, so as to prevent further health tissues.

Dialysis is very helpful in removing substances with small molecular weight like creatinine and urea nitrogen. Therefore, after dialysis, IgA Nephropathy patients may find their serum creatinine level is lowered down effectively. Besides, as dialysis only helps to purify blood and it can not improve kidney function, so once IgA Nephropathy patients start dialysis, they need to do it regularly.

Can a IgA Nephropathy patient with high creatinine survive without dialysis?

Dialysis is helpful, but torturous, so some IgA Nephropathy patients refuse to do dialysis when their illness develops to end stage. Well, is it possible for them to survive without dialysis?

Dialysis is a life-sustaining choice for IgA Nephropathy patients, but it is not the only treatment option. For patients who still have some healthy kidney function, they can try Immunotherapy which is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. With the help of this treatment, kidney function can be improved well. By strengthening kidney, it is quite possible for IgA Nephropathy patients to live as long as a healthy person.
