Treatment experience in our hospital

-In December 8th 2012, he came to our hospital to receive treatment for first time.

IgA Nephropathy is associated with IgA and C3 depositing in the mesangial area of glomeruli. IgA and C3 results from infections. The previous treatment Mr. Zhang receive was mainly steroids and immunosuppressants to inhibit kidney inflammation and eliminate symptoms. But the fundamental way is to cleanse those immune complexes from the kidneys. Therefore, our treatment mainly focuses on immune complexes clearance.

Therapeutic effect: After two weeks’ treatment in our hospital, his urine protein declines to 1+, and urine blood±. And then he went home.

-In March 4th 2013, he came back our hospital for second time.

After rechecking in local hospital, he found his urine sugar was 2+ and urine protein was 2+. Therefore, he came back to receive treatment.

Treatment: Considering that his urine sugar was caused by steroid treatment, we adjusted his therapeutic schedule and reduces the dosage of steroids.

Therapeutic effect: Blood sugar and protein was under controlled.
