How An IgA Nephropathy Patient Live on Dialysis

How An IgA Nephropathy Patient Live on DialysisIgA Nephropathy is incurable. That is to say, it will develop to kidney failure eventually. And then you may have to take some kidney replacement treatment to maintain your life. Dialysis is the most common used kidney replacement treatment for kidney failure patients. How an IgA Nephropathy patient live on dialysis?

Dialysis for IgA Nephropathy

Dialysis can not regulate electrolyte balance and pH. It can not secrete hormone neither. What it does is just to take over part of kidney function to filter waste products and excess fluid from your body. During dialysis, there may be many complications such as muscle cramp, skin itch, nausea, vomit, headache, heart disease, etc. Those complications may severely affect your life quality. Besides, long-term dialysis makes your remaining kidney function disappear so that you have to live on dialysis in the remaining years. And you have to go to dialysis center 2-3 times a week and every time you have to spend several hours to receive treatment.Those may be why many kidney failure patients do not want to do dialysis.

It is possible for IgA Nephropathy patients to get rid of dialysis if they still have urine output.

Urine output indicates that some kidney tissues are still working. Among those kidney tissues, there are intact ones and inflammatory ones. We can strengthen your kidney function by repairing those inflammatory ones. In ESRD, the main problem is the accumulated waste products. Apart from dialysis, there are many other therapies to cleanse your blood thoroughly, such as immune absorption, plasma exchange, enema therapy, medicated bath, steam therapy, circle therapy, etc. After blood purification, we supplement essential nutrients such as vitamins and trace elements to activated DNA duplication so as to speed up kidney recovery. After a period of treatment, you can regain some kidney function. When your kidney function is more than 15%, you can live withour dialysis.
