IgA Nephropathy is one common glomerulonephritis that can also present Nephrotic Syndrome. Characterized by the deposits of IgA in glomeruli, most of IgA Nephropathy patients have recurrent episodes of blood in urine. Only in some cases, sugar appears in the urine. Well then, how to lower blood and sugar in urine for IgA Nephropathy patients?
Why do IgA Nephropathy causes blood and sugar in urine?
Normally, glomeruli can filter out some red blood cells and sugar, but renal tubules can reabsorb nearly all of them. Since IgA Nephropathy is one disease that damages glomeruli, diseased glomeruli make more blood and sugar leak out. With the progress of IgA Nephropathy, renal tubules are also involved easily. When the amount of blood and sugar filtered out by glomeruli is beyond the reabsorption ability of renal tubules, extra blood and sugar will appear in the urine.
From this analysis, we can know blood and sugar in urine results from damaged glomeruli and renal tubules. In addition, sugar in urine may also indicate diabetes, while blood urine may be due to urinary tract infections.
How to reduce blood and sugar in urine for IgA Nephropathy?
To achieve this goal, we had better use some treatments to manage damaged glomeruli and renal tubules. Here, we would like to recommend a systemic treatment.
1. Cleanse the inner body system: As kidneys can’t do their work properly, more and more waste products and toxins will build up in the body, to cause further kidney damage and disturb the body self-healing ability. Therefore, some detoxification medicines are needed to remove waste products and toxins. (Tell the online doctor your illness condition, so they can prescribe you correct medications.)
2. Protect kidneys and prevent kidney inflammation: Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, based on TCM, has obvious effects of expanding blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and degrading extracellular. Therefore, it is used commonly to inhibit inflammatory reaction for IgA Nephropathy patients.
3. Repair damaged kidney cells: CIK cell is one type of stem cell that has been used widely to differentiate into some certain cells. In special environment, kidney experts can make them differentiate into damaged glomerular or renal tubular cells. When patients’ glomeruli and renal tubules can do their work normally, blood and glucose in the urine will disappear.
If your blood and sugar in urine is due to other conditions, you may need some other methods. Remember to modify your treatment plan along with your medical case, with doctor’s guidance.
