IgA Nephropathy is a kind of nephropathy that is related to IgA immune globulin that is very important to our body. Here is a brief knowledge about it.
IgA Nephropathy is a type of chronic glomerular disease with same immune pathological features caused by various reasons. In clinic,there are about 40%-45% of patients who suffer from hematuria,and about 35%-40% of patients may have proteinuria. Others patients may also suffer from the Nephrotic Syndrome or Kidney Failure. IgA Nephropathy is a common glomerular disease around the world.
Many patients with IgA Nephropathy are anxious about their lifetime. So what about the prognosis of the IgA Nephropathy patients?
Owing to chronicity of this disease,most of patients may maintain a better renal function after the occurring of IgA Nephropathy in few even ten years. However,there are also some causes that may effect the prognosis of IgA Nephropathy.
1.Male patients with older age may have poor prognosis.
2.Patients with persistent microscopic hematuria accompanying proteinuria have poor prognosis.
3.If patients have medium and heavy proteinuria,it often shows that the disease has deteriorated into renal insufficiency. In this case,patients have poor prognosis. But if the IgA Nephropathy patients have symptoms of nephrotic syndrome and the change of kidney tissue pathology is slight and have good response to hormones,patients will be better than before.
4.Patients with high blood pressure that is difficult to control have the poor prognosis.
What need reminds is that gravidity have no influence to IgA Nephropathy. Generally speaking,gravidity is safe to patients who have no high blood pressure and decline of renal function.
For IgA Nephropathy patients,except the healthy diet,it is necessary to take some therapies to control the disease process. In addition to the dialysis,Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a better way to treat the disease. It has less side-affects to limit and relieve the symptoms compared with Dialysis or some medicine.
