What Do I Need to Worry About with IgA Nephropathy Class IV

Question: Hi. I was diagnose with IgA Nephropathy class IV. What do I need to worry about at this moment?

What Do I Need to Worry About with IgA Nephropathy Class IVAnswer: Class IV is the end stage of kidney failure. It means your kidneys are severely damaged by IgA Nephropathy. In such a stage, massive waste products build up in the blood, which can impair all systems of body so as to threaten your life. Therefore, timely and effective treatment is needed.

Dialysis and kidney transplant

Dialysis and kidney transplant are the most common used treatment for class IV. Dialysis takes over part of kidney function to cleanse the blood, while kidney transplant takes over all kidney function. Relatively speaking, kidney transplant is better than dialysis. But both of them have many disadvantages. For example, dialysis has many side effects and complications in the long run. And after kidney transplant, you have to take immunosuppressants to prevent kidney rejection, which can suppress the immune system so as to expose you to various diseases.

Blood Pollution Therapy

If you still have urine output, it is possible for you to restore some kidney function so as to avoid dialysis and kidney transplant. Blood Pollution Therapy is a combination of various blood purification therapies, such as plasma exchange, immune absorption, enema therapy, circle therapy, medicated bath, steam therapy, etc. It can not only have a thorough cleanse of the polluted blood, but also remove stasis from the blood vessels to recover normal blood circulation. Besides, it can supplement the damaged kidneys with essential elements, such as amino acids and vitamins. When your kidneys get enough blood and nutrients, they can repair themselves to certain extent.

What do I need to worry about with IgA Nephropathy Class IV? Space limited, so I just list the medical treatment. In fact, treatment for IgA Nephropathy should include many aspects besides medical treatment, such as diet treatment, exercise, emotion, etc. If you would like to know more information about IgA Nephropathy, please leave your basic information below.
