In the early stage of IgA Nephropathy, tonsillectomy may be helpful for you to reduce the source of immune complexes so as to slow down the progression to kidney failure. But in advanced stage of IgA Nephropathy, inflammatory response in kidneys does not only release a lot of inflammatory factors, but also produces other renal toxic substances to impair your kidney tissues. This is more serious than tonsillectomy. In such case, it is unnecessary for you to remove tonsil and the treatment for IgA Nephropathy should focus on improving ischemia and anoxia, lowering blood pressure, promoting blood circulation and cleansing waste products in the blood.
