What should be paid attention to in treating IgA Nephropathy? IgA Nephropathy is a kind of serious kidney disease. If not treated in time, it will develop into Renal Failure and become life threatening. Here experts in Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital introduce some matters need attention in treating IgA Nephropathy. Hope it can help you.
1. In treating IgA Nephropathy, patients have to strictly control the blood
pressure. The most proper medicine for blood pressure are ACEI and ARB. These
medicine can not only lower the blood pressure of the whole body, but also lower
the perfusion pressure inside the glomeruli and protect the kidneys.
2. Some typical immunosuppressive agents are also widely used in treating IgA
nephropathy, but the effect needs further assessment. For patients with large
amount of urine protein and severe mesangial proliferation or focal sclerosis,
glucocorticoid should be used together with immunosuppressive agents. Patients

Nephropathy is closely related to mucosal infection, especially infection of the
upper respiratory tract. If patients have repeated gross hematuria and
tonsillitis, we suggest tonsillectomy so as to avoid the aggravation of the
The progressing of IgA Nephropathy is the process of renal fibrosis.
Therefore, the fundamental treatment for IgA Nephropathy should be stopping the
renal fibrosis. In China, we use Chinese herbal medicine to treat the disease
and has achieved great effect. Micro-Chinese medicine treat the disease from the
root cause. It can expand the blood vessels, improve the renal state of ischemia
and anoxia and stop the further damage of all kinds of renal cells thus
recovering the function of the damaged cells. At the same time, the active
material of the Chinese medicine can inactivate the various cytotoxicity factors
and regulate the immune system so as to remove the inducing factors of the
disease and avoid deposition of immune complex.
The final result of renal fibrosis is Renal Failure. Therefore, in order to

so as to control the disease from the root cause and protect the remaining renal
