What to Do to Keep from Getting Viruses with IgA Nephropathy

Question: I was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy in 2010. I have been sick since March 30 with lung infections. I felt better for the past week. But now I am getting it back again. I want to ask what to do to keep from getting viruses.

What to Do to Keep from Getting Viruses with IgA NephropathyAnswer: IgA Nephropathy (or Berger’s Disease) is an autoimmune disease caused by IgA settling in the mesangial area of glomeruli. In order to cleanse them, your kidneys launch inflammatory reaction, which over time causes kidney function impairment.

Why you get infections frequently with IgA Nephropathy?

For human, there are two immune systems, namely innate immune system and adaptive immune system. When your innate immune system is not strong enough to fight against those bacteria and virus, they can invade into your body. And then your adaptive immune system is activated to resist.

For IgA Nephropathy patients, their innate immune system is weak. Steroids and other immunosuppressants are the common used drugs for IgA Nephropathy patients to inhibit kidney inflammation and prevent further kidney damage, but they can weaken your immune system further so as to expose you to more diseases.

How to keep from getting viruses with IgA Nephropathy?

If you want to prevent getting viruses with IgA Nephropathy, you should strengthen your immune system.

-Do some gentle exercise in the daily

When your IgA Nephropathy is stabilized, you should add exercise in the routine. Mild exercise such as walking, jogging, yoga and tai chi is good for health. They do not only boost your immune system, but also help you control blood pressure, lower blood cholesterol level, improve blood circulation, promote sleeping quality, etc.

-Follow a balanced diet

A balanced diet can provide all the essential nutrients your body needs to maintain its normal function. The balanced nutrients can also activate immune genes in the cells so as to help you fight against the diseases.

-Change steroids and immunosuppressants into some natural remedies for IgA Nephropathy

Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine can make up the disadvantages of western medicines so as to achieve a better therapeutic effect. It can cleanse the cycling immune complexes in the blood to reduce their deposition in the kidneys. It can also increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes to prevent kidney inflammation. Besides, it can improve blood circulation to help kidney self-healing. And it can even make your whole body harmonious and balanced to help you resist viruses.
