What Can I Do to Avoid Ramipril with IgA Nephropathy

Question: I have IgA Nephropathy. Now my kidney function is OK, but I have scarring and high blood pressure. What can I do so I do not have to take Ramipril?

What Can I Do to Avoid Ramipril with IgA NephropathyAnswer: Under normal circumstance, in the early stage of IgA Nephropathy, only 5%-10% patients have high blood pressure. With the deterioration of IgA Nephropathy, you have more and more possibility to have hypertension. Hypertension is a risk factor for IgA Nephropathy patients, because it does not only cause further damage to your kidneys, but also affect your heart, cardiovascular system, eyes and some other organs of your body so as to threaten your life.

Ramipril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI), used to treat high blood pressure. But it should be used for long-term, which may cause many side effects, such as headache, cough, dizziness, weakness, tired feeling, etc. That may be why many patients do not want to take Ramipril any more after a period of treatment. In such case, you can choose some herbs to help you.

In China, there are many prescriptions for high blood pressure caused by IgA Nephropathy, but it should be made according to your medical condition. If you would like one, please send your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com. After analyzing your case, we will give you reply.

Besides medical treatment, you should follow a healthy lifestyle. For example, you should limit the intake of salt. You should keep your moon positive. You should take part in some exercises in the daily to strengthen yourself. Besides, you should give up alcohol and tobacco and avoid staying up, etc.

Now your kidney function is OK. If you want to preserve your kidney function as long as possible, you should take treatment to normalize your blood pressure. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
