IgA Nephropathy, known as Berger’s disease is a common glomerulonephritis, which is mainly caused by depositing of IgA immune complexes. How does the disease affect kidneys? Let’s learn about the questions here! Any questions after reading, you can email to us at email@example.com or leave a message below directly!
Immune complexes cause damaged to glomeruli.
It is well known that glomeruli are the filters of the kidneys, which can help purify blood by removing extra wastes and toxins. However, the deposits cause inflammation of glomerulus and proliferation of mesangial matrix cells, and eventual scarring of the glimerulus. Thus, blood flow is affected in glomeruli and when blood can’t go through glomeruli, the glomeruli are non-functional, then kidney function will decline gradually. Generally speaking, with deposits building up in glomerulus, the disease usually progresses slowly. However, along with progression of kidney damage, patients are prone to suffer from some symptoms and complications, affecting patients’ quality of life and aggravating illness conditions badly.
What symptoms will occur with IgA nephropathy?
Actually, in the early stage, most patients are asymptomatic due to great kidneys’ compensatory ability. However, when kidneys are damaged moderately or severely, high blood pressure, swelling, renal anemia, blood in urine, proteinuria, back pain and forth on will torture patients. If left untreated, it will lead to some serious complications such as high cholesterol level, Nephrotic Syndrome. More worse, Kidney Failure will be induced that can be acute or chronic.
Well then, is there any good treatments to help IgA nephroapthy patients?
Dialysis or Kidney Transplant can help you prolong life expectancy if you have entered into renal failure stage. However, it cannot be the best choices. As long as you have urine output, there is a great chance to get rid of dialysis with unique Chinese medicines. “Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy” and “Immunotherapy” are good partners for removing immune complexes and repairing kidney damage thoroughly. But you need to come to China for the treatments. Wanna more details, don’t forget to contact with us timely!
