Can IgA Nephropathy Stage 3 Get Back to Stage 1

Question: I have IgA Nephropathy stage 3. Can you suggest somethings I could to to get back to stage 1?

Can IgA Nephropathy Stage 3 Get Back to Stage 1Answer: IgA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease) is a kind of chronic disease, which means it takes many years for you to develop to complete kidney failure. During this course, according to GFR, IgA Nephropathy is classified into five stages. Now you are in stage 3, it means your GFR is between 30 and 60. If you want to get back to stage1, you should enhance GFR to more than 90.

First, let’s have a look at why your GFR declines with IgA Nephropathy.

IgA Nephropathy is considered to be an immune-complex mediated disorder. Immune complexes form when the body is exposed to an antigen, such as virus and bacteria. In response, your body sends out antibodies such as IgA to lock onto the surfaces of viruses and other foreign cells. Under normal circumstance, they can be removed by the liver and other organs with blood circulation. But in IgA Nephropathy, they become trapped in the glomeruli. In order to eliminate them, your kidneys launch inflammatory response, which increases the permeability of glomeruli so that red blood cells and protein leaks out of the body, leading to hematuria and proteinuria. Long-term inflammation will impair your kidneys and then GFR declines.

Second, let’s have a look at how to improve GFR for IgA Nephropathy patients.

From the above we can see that to improve GFR for IgA Nephropathy patients, they should do the following things:

-Block kidney inflammation to stop proteinuria and hematuria.

-Cleanse the cycling immune complexes and the deposited ones.

-Reduce the production of immune complexes.

-Increase kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so as to prevent kidney inflammation.

-Strengthen innate immune system so that bacteria and virus can not enter your body.

Current treatment for IgA Nephropathy such as steroids and immunosuppressants can only help you achieve the first goal. If you want to achieve all the goals, you should take advantage of the combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine—Immunotherapy. It is a breakthrough in treating IgA Nephropathy. If you are interested in it, please feel free to contact online doctor.

Can IgA Nephropathy stage 3 get back to stage 1? It is a little difficult, but proper treatment can help you enhance GFR to certain extent and avoid dialysis. And the earlier you receive treatment, the more possibility for you to lead a healthy life.
