Medications for IgA Nephropathy PatientsAre you looking for some medications to manage your IgA Nephropathy? How about the result? If you still have no idea, please read this passage and you will find out things you expect all the time.

IgA (Immunoglobulin A) Nephropathy is characterized by predominant IgA deposition in the glomerular mesangium. It is highly variable, both clinically and pathologically. Clinical features range from asymptomatic hematuria to rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN). And it is also associated with microscopic hematuria or recurrent macroscopic hematuria. And the condition can sometimes lead to chronic kidney disease as well. In addition, during the onset of illness, patients will suffer from high blood pressure and serious edema. Then, in order to control these symptoms, I will recommend some medications for you.

ACE inhibitors

Hypertension (high blood pressure) should be treated early and aggressively. ACE inhibitors are the antihypertensives of choice. And comparative studies show ACE inhibitors are more effective than other antihypertensives like ie, beta blockers, calcium channel blockers in reducing blood pressure and proteinuria, protecting renal function and delaying onset if ESRD.


Prednisone should be used in patients with nephrotic syndrome and mnimal histologic findings. It aims to treating autoimmune disorders. What I want to emphasize is that you should take these medications under a professional doctor’s guidance.

Chinese medical herbs

Actually, compared to western medications, I prefer recommending Chinese medical herbs. Why? Because Chinese medicine has a history of 5,000 years and has abundant medical value. What’s more, At our Beijing Tongshantang Hospital, China, we created some systemic therapies which are based on TCM, like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Hot Compress Therapy, Full Bath Therapy, Circle Therapy and so on, among which Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is widely used. It is an innovation form of TCM, but used externally. The active ingredients of Chinese medicines can be permeated into kidney lesions through the help of osmosis devices. They can remove the wastes and toxins out of the body and repair kidney damage and enhance immunity.

Currently, no cure exists for IgA nephropathy. However, therapies that can delay the onset of need for dialysis and transplantation are available. If you are interested in these therapies, please tell us by leaving a message below or email us to
