What Can I Do to Slow Down Its Progression with IgA Nephropathy and 48% Kidney Function

Question: I have been diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy. My kidney function is down to 48% and I am wondering what I can do to slow down its progression.

What Can I Do to Slow Down Its Progression with IgA Nephropathy and 48% Kidney FunctionAnswer: IgA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease) impairs your kidney function gradually without effective treatment. As we can see, your kidney function is down to 48%, which indicates that the treatment you receive now is not effective.

To slow down its progression, you should find out how IgA Nephropathy causes kidney damage.

IgA Nephropathy is a kind of glomerulonephritis. Inflammation in the kidneys is caused by IgA and its immune complexes depositing in the mesangial area of glomeruli. IgA is a kind of antibody, and immune complexes are produced when IgA fights against the invading bacteria and virus.

To slow down its progression, you should strengthen your immune system.

When your immune system is strengthened, it can stop bacteria and virus from invading into your body so as to reduce the production of IgA and its immune complexes. Doing some gentle exercise, following a balanced diet, keeping good mood and having a good rest can all boost your immune system.

To slow down its progression, you should lower blood pressure.

High blood pressure is the common complication of IgA Nephropathy. It can cause further damage to your kidneys. Therefore, you should reduce hypertension timely. If your blood pressure can not be lowered by conventional medications, such as ACEI and ARBs, you can try Interventional Therapy.

To slow down its progression, you should find a suitable treatment plan.

Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can cleanse the cycling immune complexes in the blood to reduce their deposition. It can block abnormal immune reaction to reduce the production of IgA and immune complexes. It can increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes to prevent inflammation. It can strengthen your innate immune system to help you fight against the disease. After a period of treatment, your kidney function can be promoted to certain extent.

If you take treatment now, it is possible for you to preserve the remaining kidney function and prevent kidney failure. But because the information you give me is too general, I can not give you a detailed treatment plan. For more information, please send your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com. After analyzing your case, we will contact you.
