Can IgA Nephropathy Be Hereditary and FatalCan IgA Nephropathy be hereditary? Can it be fatal? And will it be passed down to the children? The questions are very commonly seen among adults with IgA nephropathy, especially young people who have not been married or have no child. Now, let’s have a look at the introduction below.

Is IgA nephropathy be hereditary?

IgA Nephropathy is a result of predominant IgA building up in the glomerular mesangium and attacking it. It is an autoimmune disease, which means the onset of it is very closely related with our immune system. What’s more, the immune system disease is still a problem over the world and more than 90% of IgA nephropathy suffers are sporadic and this may imply that it is not hereditary in most of cases.

To be frank, it is the contribution of both congenital and postnatal factors. So many patients wonder if this will be passed down to their kids. There is possibility that onset of IgA nephropathy is related to genetic deficiency, but it may not be the whole cause of the kidney lesion. In clinical, it is relative rare for the disease to appear in more than one family. It is possible that environment and some other factors may provide the prepositional requirements for realizing of genetic predisposition. Therefore, IgA Nephropathy will not definitely inherit to their children.

Well then, can IgA Nephropathy be fatal?

If untreated effectively in the early stage, the kind of kidney disease may progress to Stage 5 Kidney Disease or Kidney Failure which can be fatal.

In the condition, dialysis or kidney transplant can be considered. But it’s my duty to tell you the fact: IgA patients have a higher recurrence rate after kidney transplant because IgA deposition can occur in the transplanted kidney again.

Well then, how to treat it without dialysis or kidney transplant.

The earlier effective treatment is applied, the better the chance of avoiding dialysis or kidney transplant. Well, how to do? Our treatment Immunotherapy can as your reference. More detailed info, please attach your test report to or ask our online doctors directly.
