Is IgA Nephropathy reversible? IgA Nephropathy usually progresses slowly, and patients in most cases may have kidney failure eventually. Before their kidneys are damaged completely, they must hope IgA Nephropathy can be cured or reversed. Is it possible to achieve?
To know the answer, we had better make clear the root cause of IgA Nephropathy.
IgA Nephropathy is one autoimmune disorder. Normally, when harmful substances, called antigen, invade the body, our immune system will produce corresponding antibodies to combine and kill antigen. Then, the circulatory system discharges immune complexes, the combination of antigen and antibody, out of the body. However, when immune system balance is disturbed, these immune complexes will build up in some organs via blood circulation. IgA Nephropathy just results from predominant IgA in kidneys.
Can IgA Nephropathy be reversible?
The conventional therapies include steroids, immunosuppressants, tonsillectomy, etc. All of these medicines and treatments focus on easing patients’ symptoms and slowing down the progression of IgA Nephropathy. Therefore, the outcome of these therapies isn’t as good as we expect. Also, most patients finally have kidney failure. In view of this, some treatments that can reverse kidney damage and treat IgA Nephropathy from the root are needed urgently.
One treatment, called Micro-Chinese Medicine Hot Compress Therapy, is one combination of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and stem cells. TCM is used to combine immune complexes, split them and discharge them out of the body. Also, they can help normalize patients’ immune system. Therefore, TCM can help treat IgA Nephropathy fundamentally. Stem cells, such as CIK cells and interleukin 12, are proven to be effective and safe for differentiating damaged cells as well as kidney cells. Therefore, they can help rebuild kidney structure and improve patients’ GFR level obviously.
Of course, not all IgA Nephropathy patients can use this therapy to control their illness condition. If you are interested, you can ask the doctor online whether you are candidate for Micro-Chinese Medicine Hot Compress Therapy.
