Treatment for IgA NephropathyIgA Nephropathy is a common cause of glomerulonephritis. 20%-40% patients with this disease will develop into chronic renal failure and ESRD within 20years. Up to now, there is no cure for this disorder, but some treatments can delay it’s progression. The suggested treatments are as follows:

1. Avoid infection

IgA Nephropathy has connection with infections, especially the upper respiratory tract infection. If patients experience gross hematuria repeatedly, the recommended method is to remove tonsil and avoid the deterioration of this disease.

2. Blood pressure control

For patients with high blood pressure, they should monitor hypertension actively in early stage, and it should be controlled at 130/80 mm Hg. Antihypertensive drugs, such as Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors(ACEI) and Angiotensin Receptor Blocker(ARB) can reduce the perfusion pressure inside the glomerular and protect the kidneys.

3. The application of glucocorticoid

For patients with massive proteinuria, moderate mesangial proliferation or focal segmental glomerulosclerosis(FSGS), they can adopt the treatment of glucocorticoid. At the same time, try to avoid the occurrence of severe infection.
