IgA nephropathy is a kidney disease that causes the kidneys to become inflamed.

After Diabetes and High Blood Pressure, IgA nephroapthy is the third leading cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the United States. Therefore, it is important to take effective treatment, so as to stop or at least control progression of illness condition.
Well then, how to stop the progress of IgA nephropathy in the early stage?
Sometimes, in the early stage, patients do not suffer from any discomforts or symptoms due to the kidneys’ strong compensatory ability. It is relatively rare that patients will suffer from blood urine, swelling, fatigue, proteinuria, urinary tract infection in the early stage. Therefore, many patients do dot know that their kidney has been damage until they do some physical tests or illness condition has progressed into moderate stage. In order to prevent the condition, you should do the following things:
1. Do routine tests regularly.
2. Control blood pressure and blood sugar level.
3. Have a healthy and balanced eating plan (Generally, low-protein, low-salt, high vitamins intake; drink more water).
4. Living a healthy life (do exercises regularly; keep away from alcohol and tobacco; reduce intake of drinks which contains caffeine)
5. Omega-3fatty acid, these healthy fat can help reduce the inflammation of the kidneys.
6. Chinese Medicine Treatment. Compared to the western medicines, herbal medicines are more safe, effective and natural. But you do not allow to take the medicines until the doctor give you a guideline.
