Does He Have to Start Dialysis with Kidney Function 12% and IgA Nephropathy

Question: My husband was just diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy. He is also CKD Stage 5. His kidneys are working 12%, so does he have to start dialysis soon? What can I do to help him avoid dialysis?

Does He Have to Start Dialysis with Kidney Function 12% and IgA NephropathyAnswer: IgA Nephropathy (also known as Berger’s Disease) is a benign kidney disease, but without timely and effective treatment, it can also develop to kidney failure. As we can see, your husband was in CKD stage 5. Generally speaking, when GFR is lower than 15% or kidneys are only working at less than 10%, dialysis should be started to cleanse the waste products and maintain the life. But dialysis is not the only way out of stage 5. It is still possible to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function now.

In stage 5, the main problem is the high toxin concentration in the blood. They do not only cause further damage to the kidneys, but also impair other systems of your body, such as cardiovascular system, respiratory system, blood system and so on to threaten your life. Therefore, treatment should focus on cleansing the polluted blood. Besides dialysis, there are many others kinds of blood purification therapies, such as plasma exchange, immune absorption, medicated bath, circle therapy, enema therapy, steam therapy, etc. Blood Pollution Therapy is a combination of these therapies. It can have a thorough cleanse of the blood and remove stasis from the blood vessels to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. It can also provide the damaged kidneys with essential elements according to your medical condition to speed up kidney recovery. After a period of treatment, your kidney function can be improved to certain extent. Besides Blood Pollution Therapy, Immunotherapy is also a good choice. It can regulate the abnormal immune system and remove IgA immune complexes from the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation so as to help you achieve a better therapeutic effect.

All in all, if he can take treatment as early as possible to improve kidney function, there is no need to start dialysis. If you would like to know more detailed information about our treatment on IgA Nephropathy, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
