Life Expectancy of the Patients with Berger's Disease
What is the life expectancy of the patients with Berger’s Disease? In fact, although there is no a uniform standard for it, they can extend their life expectancy by proper treatemtn. Generally speaking, the following factors attribute to the life expectancy of the paitents with Berger's Disease. As follows:
*The therapy you choose
The treatment you adopt is the primary factors affecting life expectancy of the patients with Berger’s Disease. You should choose the treatment which focuses on eliminating the underlying causes of the disease, but not those only can relieve noticeable symptoms.
Immune abnormality plays the major role in Berger’s Disease. Immune injury gives rise to impairment of the renal functional cells and tissues. If the therapy you choose aims at correcting the abnormal immunity and restoring the impaired renal functional cells, the life expectancy will be extended. Here the newest treatment of Berger's Disease is recommened to the patients.
* Treatment time
At the starting of Berger’s Disease, it may be asymptomatic and the patients also have no discomforts. Therefore, they do not go to see a doctor at that time at all. As a result, they may miss the best therapeutic opportunity resulting in severe pathological changes and complications like high blood pressure, proteinuria, Nephrotic Syndrome etc. Any of them is a big risk for their life expectancy.
* Daily habits
In addition, the patients with Berger’s Disease who keep a special diet and take proper exercise live a longer life than others. Low protein diet can reduce the production of nitrogen which can put much burden on kidneys. Limited salt consumption can relieve edema and reduce burden to heart and kidney. Moreover, aerobic exercise can enhance the immunity so as to reduce the incidence of complications of IgA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease).
If the patients with Berger’s Disease can receive proper treatment as early as possible along with healthy daily habits, they will be able to extend their life expectancy and live as long as common people.
