Is Perindopril the Standard Medication for IgA Nephropathy Patients

Question: My son has just been diagnosed with IgA Nephritis and has been prescribed perindopril. Is this the standard medication?

Is Perindopril the Standard Medication for IgA Nephropathy PatientsAnswer: IgA Nephritis is the most common form of glomerulonephritis in the world. It is caused by IgA depositing in the mesangial area of glomeruli. High blood pressure is very common among IgA Nephritis patients. Without effective and timely treatment, hypertension can cause further damage to your kidneys. It can also worsen proteinuria and impair heart. Therefore, importance should be attached to blood pressure reduction.

Conventional treatment for high blood pressure is to use ACEI or ARBs. Perindopril is a long-acting ACE inhibitor used to treat high blood pressure. Long-term use may cause some side effects, such as dizziness, back pain or cough. Besides perindopril, there are also many other kinds of medications in ACEI and ARBs. Your doctor can help you make a wise decision according to your medical condition.

To control blood pressure, you had better limit the intake of food high in sodium, such as table salt, pickles, bacon, processed food, etc. And keeping your emotion stable, having a good rest and doing some exercise in the daily is also helpful. Kidney is also responsible for regulating blood pressure, so you should bring your IgA Nephropathy under control as well. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine, which can cleanse the cycling immune complexes and inflammatory factors from the blood to reduce kidney inflammation.. It can also block abnormal immune reaction and increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes to prevent further damage. Besides, it can set up a good blood environment for the damaged kidneys to repair themselves. With the improvement of kidney function, your blood pressure will become stable.
