How Should Patients at Stage 4 IgA Nephropathy Improve GFR

How Should Patients at Stage 4 IgA Nephropathy Improve GFRWith the progression of IgA Nephropathy, glomerular filtration rate (GFR) declines gradually. In stage 4, GFR ranges from 15 to 30 ml/min. When GFR is lower than 15, you should start dialysis to maintain your life. How should patients at stage 4 IgA Nephropathy improve GFR? If you want to know the answer, go on reading.

First, we should know what is IgA Nephropathy.

IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease caused by IgA immune complexes depositing in the glomeruli. In the early stage, they just cause kidney inflammation. But over time, inflammation can impair kidney function, leading to the decline of GFR.

Second, treatment to improve GFR for patients at stage 4 IgA Nephropathy.

You can use steroids and immunosuppressants to block kidney inflammation so as to prevent further kidney damage. But because the immune complexes are still in the kidneys, when you reduce the medications or stop their intake, kidney inflammation may flare up again. If you want to improve GFR, you should cleanse the immune complexes. Immunotherapy combines western medicine and Chinese medicine. It takes advantage of various therapies in them to cleanse the cycling immune complexes and inflammatory chemicals from the blood to reduce their deposition on kidneys. They can also increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so that even if there are immune complexes, they do not cause any inflammation. Besides, they can strengthen your innate immune system to prevent bacteria and virus invading into your body so as to reduce the production of immune complexes. After a period of treatment, your damaged kidneys can regain some ability and then your GFR will increase.

How should patients at stage 4 IgA Nephropathy improve GFR? Besides the above treatment, you should follow a healthy lifestyle to maintain the therapeutic effect.
