Glomeruli are filters in kidneys.They can filter out waste products from body and meanwhile keep useful substances in body.However,in IgA nephropathy,the immune system fails to function adequately.Excessive IgA is produced by immune system and then deposits in glomeruli.The deposits of IgA can cause inflammation of kidneys.Uncontrolled inflammation can impair renal function,resulting in gradual loss of renal function. Eventually,ESRD may occur.

Dialysis for ESRD in IgA Nephropathy

Dialysis mainly includes hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.In hemodialysis,a dialyzer is used which can purify blood by removing a partial waste products from blood.Peritoneal dialysis is a procedure in which the abdominal membrane acts as a filter to filter out waste products from body.Dialysis plays an important role in prolonging the patients’ life span.
