Will the Transplanted Kidney Be Safe Through Medicines for IgA Nephropathy Patients

Question: My father biopsy shows he has IgA Nephropathy. How it could be treated? He is going to have kidney transplant next month ...Will the transplanted kidney be safe through medicines?

Will the Transplanted Kidney Be Safe Through Medicines for IgA Nephropathy PatientsAnswer: IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease caused by immunoglobulin A settling in the glomeruli. Conventional treatment for IgA Nephropathy is to use steroids and other immunosuppressants to block kidney inflammation and reduce protein leakage so as to prevent further kidney damage. Because IgA immune complexes can not be removed from kidneys, under some inducement such as respiratory tract infections, kidney inflammation will flare up again. Frequent kidney inflammation can cause kidney function impairment.

When kidneys are not able to work normally, kidney transplant or dialysis is recommended. Compared with dialysis, kidney transplant is preferred, because it can improve kidney function and let you go back a relatively normal life. But for IgA Nephropathy patients, the recurrence rate is as high as 50%. After kidney transplant, you have to take immunosuppressants to prevent kidney rejection. Long-term use of immunosuppressants can impair your immune system so as to expose your body to various diseases. Therefore, in our hospital, we seldom recommend kidney transplant for IgA Nephropathy patients. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can cleanse the cycling immune complexes and inflammatory chemicals from the blood to eliminate kidney inflammation. It can also block abnormal immune reaction and increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes to prevent further kidney damage. Besides, it can strengthen your immunity to help you fight against the disease. After a period of treatment, the damaged kidneys can repair themselves to certain extent. And then you can get rid of dialysis and kidney transplant.
