How Can I Increase My Glomerular Filtration Rate with IgA Nephropathy

How Can I Increase My Glomerular Filtration Rate with IgA NephropathyWith IgA Nephropathy, patients often concern about kidney function impairment. Glomerular filtration rate is a test often used to check how well the kidneys are functioning. How can I increase my glomerular filtration rate with IgA Nephropathy?

Medical treatment helps you protect your kidneys from being damaged.

Conventional treatment for IgA Nephropathy is to use steroids and other immunosuppressants to inhibit kidney inflammation and reduce protein leakage. They are helpful in slowing the progression to kidney failure, but they can not repair the damaged kidneys. When you get infected, IgA Nephropathy comes back again. IgA Nephropathy is caused by IgA depositing in the glomeruli, so treatment should focus on removing those immune complexes from the kidneys. Immunotherapy can cleanse the cycling immune complexes from the blood to reduce their deposition. It can also cleanse the inflammatory chemicals to reduce kidney inflammation. Besides, it can increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so that even they deposit in the kidneys, they do not cause inflammatory reaction. After a period of treatment, your kidney function will regain to certain extent. The more earlier you receive treatment, the more kidney function you can restore. As a result, your GFR increases. 

Healthy lifestyle helps you achieve a better therapeutic effect.

There goes a saying in China that chronic disease needs 30% medical treatment and 70% healthy life. From these words, we can see that healthy life plays a very importance role in IgA Nephropathy treatment. Generally speaking, IgA Nephropathy patients should follow a renal-friendly diet, which can not only provide the essential nutrients, but also not put extra stress on the kidneys. They should also do some gentle exercise to strengthen their body. Besides, they should keep positive attitude, which helps recovery. And they should give up those bad habits, such as smoking, drinking alcohol and staying up.
