Proteinuria, edema in ankles, and pain in the foot are common symptoms of IgA Nephropathy. You said you were in the stage 3. This is the pivotal time for
treatment. We must stop it develop into stage 4, if not, the condition will too
What causes edema in ankles with IgA Nephropathy?
The disease is a kind of auto immune disease that occurs when too much IgA
immune complexes deposited on the glomerular basement membrane, causing the
proliferation and swelling of mesangial cells, thus damaging the charge barrier
and mechanical barrier. The filtration membrane fails to block the leakage of
proteins and red blood cells.
The massive loss of protein may lead to hypoproteinemia, leading to decreased
plasma colloid osmotic pressure. So edema occurs.
In order to eliminate the symptoms of edema in ankles completely, we must
remove the immune complex on the basement membrane and repair the damaged
mesangial cells, the protein leakage will be stopped. Besides, we should restore
the kidney function.
In our hospital, Immunotherapy and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy are
used together to treat IgA Nephropathy on the basis of exact diagnosis. We have
to know what kind of immune complex is deposited and the amount and position it
deposits exactly. In this way, we can give you targeted treatment. While
controlling the immune reaction, Chinese medicine will be used for kidney repair
As one of the largest kidney disease specialized hospitals throughout the
world, we have treated more than 20,000 patients with kidney diseases or
Diabetes every year, and 30% patients suffer IgA Nephropathy. So, you can have
the most successful chance of recovery.
