Complications of IgA Glomerulonephritis are secondary conditions, symptoms, or other disorders that are caused by this disease. These serious conditions include chronic Renal Failure, end-stage renal disease (ESRD), and acute renal failure. How to prevent them?
1. Chronic Renal Failure
This is often associated with persistent proteinuria and anaemia of chronic
2. End-stage renal disease
Highly likely in patients with sustained hypertension, persistent
proteinuria, and Nephrotic Syndrome. The rate of progression to ESRD is about 1%
to 2% per year from diagnosis. Patients with hypertension, elevated creatinine,
and persistent, massive proteinuria develop this condition in a short time frame
(60% of the patients in a 7-year period.)
3. Acute renal failure
Some patients have rapid progression. This condition is usually benign and
high creatinine often recover to baseline in several weeks.
From the above analysis, we can conclude that in order to prevent IgA
Glomerulonephritis Complications effectively, it is necessary to eliminate the
progressive factors, such as hypertension, massive proteinuria, etc.
Conventionally, medications like high BP medicine and immunosuppressive drugs
are used to alleviate these symptoms. Dietary modification is also needed.
Patients are recommended to do proper exercise, limit drinking alcohol, and stop
smoking. All of these measures can effectively control the progression and delay
the occurrence of complications.
In order to avoid IgA Glomerulonephritis Complications, the most effective
way certainly is eliminate the root cause and recover the kidney function. At
present, the latest treatment for your disease is immunotherapy, which occurs on
the basis of 26 years' experience and expertise in kidney disease treatment.
