2012-10-20 09:46

In clinical, IgA Nephropathy patients are usually treated by the steroid drugs and immunosuppressive drugs to treat the symptoms and complications. While it neglects the root cause of the disease and the repair to damaged kidneys. That is the reason why more and more IgA Nephropathy patients develop into Renal Failure.

High blood pressure is a common complication of IgA Nephropathy. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) are usually used in clinical. These medications not only lower blood pressure also play a certain role in reducing proteinuria. They are good medicines, but long-term use can cause certain side effects. Pregnant women should not take ARBs or ACE inhibitors because they can damage the unborn baby. High cholesterol is another complication of IgA Nephropathy. If patients pay more attention to their diet and with the help of medicines, the cholesterol level can be lowered. Prednisone may help treat IgA Nephropathy, but long-term use can cause harmful side effects, such as moon face, poor growth and development, osteoporosis and even infertility and so on. As to the treatment for IgA Nephropathy or its complications, all the medicines have side effects. Moreover, not all the patients respond to steroid drugs well, for this group of patients, they can only wait for the worsening of the disease.

High blood pressure and the kidney damage can influence each other. The best treatment for IgA patients is to clean their blood, eliminate the immune complexes depositing in kidneys and repair the damaged kidneys. That is to say, we should not only deal with all the factors that can cause kidney damage also solve the problems which have been created, and they are the damaged kidneys and abnormal immune system.
