Can Steroids Help Stop IgA Nephropathy

Can Steroids Help Stop IgA NephropathySteroids such as prednisone and prednisolone may be the most commonly prescribed drugs for kidney patients. Can steroids help stop IgA Nephropathy?

In short-term, steroids are helpful for you to control IgA Nephropathy.

IgA Nephropathy is the most common glomerulonephritis, which is caused by IgA trapping in the kidneys. Those deposited IgA causes a series of kidney inflammation so as to increase the permeability of capillaries and impair charge barrier. As a result, protein and red blood cells leak into the urine. Steroids can block the inflammatory reaction in the kidneys and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to stop proteinuria and hematuria. In short-term, they can preserve your kidney function.

In long-term, steroids are not enough.

If taken for a long time, steroids have many side effects, such as weight gain, fluid retention, raised high blood pressure, diabetes, risk of serious infections, thinning of bones, etc. Besides, steroids can not cleanse IgA from the kidneys. An infection or other illness may trigger kidney inflammation again. If you do not want to suffer from those side effects, you should combine steroids with some other western medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine. They can make up respective shortcomings. They can also cleanse IgA and its immune complexes from the kidneys. Moreover, they can increase kidneys’ tolerance to IgA so as to reduce inflammation and they can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. This is our Immunotherapy. With Immunotherapy, you can protect your kidneys very well without worrying about kidney failure. At the same time, you won’t worry about those terrible side effects of steroids.

Can steroids help stop IgA Nephropathy? Yes, they are helpful, but if you want to lead a normal and full life, you should take advantage of Traditional Chinese Medicine. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
