Life Expectancy of IgA Nephropathy on Dialysis

2014-01-20 23:22| Font Size A A A

IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease. Many patients experience dialysis when it develops into kidney failure. What is the life expectancy of IgA Nephropathy on dialysis?

IgA nephropathy is characterized by the glomerulus damage with the immune complex depositing on glomerulus, which is the main organism to filter the blood. If the glomerulus are damaged, kidneys are not able to well filter the blood. So waste products and extra water and electrolyte will accumulate in blood, causing many symptoms. When they accumulate to a certain level, dialysis will be recommended.

Can dialysis prolong the life expectancy? I think this is the question that people concern most. Dialysis can help relieve some symptoms by discharging the toxins and extra water. Otherwise, it can help control the progression of the primary disease. Normally, the life expectancy can be prolonged to 3-5 years on dialysis. But the lifespan differs from people to people due to different illness condition, causes and treatments. You can consult “How Long Do People Live on Dialysis” for more detailed information.

Though dialysis can help prolong the life expectancy, there are some limitations of dialysis. It will bring a series of side-effects and it has no function of improving kidney function. Then how to prolong the life expectancy as long as possible?

There are two things that you should do to prolong the life expectancy of IgA Nephropathy, that is to purify the blood and to improve kidney function. Blood pollution therapy and Immunotherapy are recommended to achieve the two goals. The two methods are regarded as the natural treatments for IgA Nephropathy.
