Basic Information About the Autoimmune Kidney Disease (IgA Nephropathy)

Basic Information About the Autoimmune Kidney Disease (IgA Nephropathy)IgA nephropathy is a form of glomerulonephritis, which refers to the kidney damage caused by the abnormal buildup of a protein (IgA) in kidneys. Research shows that this disease is mainly duet to an autoimmune disorder, but the motion of starting the disease is not yet known. In the following article, we will introduce some basic information about the autoimmune kidney disease (IgA nephropathy).

Similar with other kinds of kidney diseases, IgA nephropathy is also a sneaky thing, because patients may have no symptoms at all for a long time while it is developing. And this means the patients can be very unfortunately, they never realize they ave a kidney problem until there are some symptoms appear, such as back pain, blood in urine, bubbled in urine or swelling. So we need to get some knowledge of this disease and take early prevention.

The IgA nephropathy often begins in older children or young adults in their 20s and 30s, and it occurs more often in males, but rare in blacks. The IgA nephropathy seems to run in families, which suggests that genetics play a part in patients.

When patients get IgA nephropathy, the most common symptom is blood in urine, and the urine can be looked like tea-colored. In order to make further diagnosis, patients may need to do a kidney biopsy (remove a small piece of kidney tissue).

Once patients were diagnosed with IgA nephropathy, they need to take early treatment, which can slow down their progression and prevent kidney failure. Here are some of the current treatments:

- Control the high blood pressure through diet and medication

- Take steroids, such as prednisone

- Drugs to suppress the immune system

- Fish oil dietary supplements

In our hospital, we use the Immunotherapy and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to remedy the IgA nephropathy, which can help regulate the immune system and remove the IgA immune complexes out, and the therapies can also help repair damaged kidney tissues and improve kidney function, then the IgA nephropathy can be controlled well.
