IgA Nephropathy After Kidney TransplantIgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease. Although kidney transplant can replace the damaged kidneys to work, it can not correct the abnormal immune system. That is why IgA Nephropathy comes back easily after kidney transplant. Now go on reading to learn more information.

Many renal failure patients prefer kidney transplant to dialysis, because kidney transplant can promote the patients’ living quality and allow patients to lead a relatively normal life. But we should know that not all renal patients can do it. For IgA Nephropathy patients, the abnormal immune system can make the kidneys to be attacked again, leading to the relapse. Therefore, as long as you still produce urination and your kidney size is still over 6cm, it is not recommended to do kidney transplant.

Treatment for IgA Nephropathy patients to improve renal function

Symptomatic treatment is only to control symptoms and reduce your discomforts. To improve renal function, you have to try a systemic treatment. In Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital, we usually use Toxin-Removing Treatment. This treatment is composed of 9 therapies. Those therapies can work together to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body via urination, sweating and bowel movement. They can also expand blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood flow so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients, vitamins and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, they can dissolve IgA immune complexes and reduce their deposition on kidneys so as to reduce renal inflammation, and they can also restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to control the disease from getting worse.

-After about one week’s treatment, you will see a lot of floccules in urine, which are those wastes being passed out.

-After about half month’s treatment, your high creatinine, uric acid and urea level will be reduced by at least 10%. Symptoms such as weakness, skin itching, nausea, vomiting and so on will get relieved greatly.

-After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved gradually, and then it is possible for you to keep dialysis or kidney transplant away.

IgA Nephropathy recurs easily after kidney transplant, so if you still have some renal function, it is better for you to protect your own kidneys. For more information on IgA Nephropathy treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
