IgA Nephropathy: Is Dialysis A Curative Treatment

2013-12-25 19:01| Font Size A A A

IgA nephropathy will develop into kidney failure when kidney function declines to below 15%. Many patients will go through dialysis with kidney failure. But is dialysis a curative treatment for IgA nephropathy patients?

IgA nephropathy is an autoimmune kidney disease which characterized by the glomerular damage with the deposition of the immune complex on mesangial area of glomerulus. With low immunity, the immune complex on glomerulus will enlarge the inflammatory reaction, which will continuously damage kidneys. When kidneys are damaged, the glomerular filtration rate will decline, so kidneys cannot well perform their jobs. As a result, the toxins and extra water in blood cannot be discharged. They will accumulate in blood and cause further damage.

Is dialysis a curative treatment?

Dialysis is an artificial kidney, which aims at replacing part of the lost functions of kidneys. It can help kidneys discharge extra toxins and extra water in blood to relieve some symptoms. But dialysis can only discharge some micro molecule toxins. Some middle and large molecular toxin will still stay in the blood, so as to the immune complex. The illness cannot recover unless the immune complex is discharged. So dialysis is not the curative treatment for IgA nephropathy patients.

How to treat IgA nephropathy effectively?

To clean the immune complex out is the first thing to do to treat IgA nephropathy for if the immune complex remains in blood, they will keep on causing damage to kidneys. In other words, it is to clean the blood. Since dialysis is not enough to achieve such effects, I recommend immune adsorption and plasma exchange, which is more advanced and effective than dialysis.

Along with the blood purification technic, treatment to repair the damaged kidney cells should be taken. Hot Compress therapy is a better choice for you. It cannot only repair the impaired kidney tissues by dilating blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and degrading extracellular matrix, but also can improve kidney function and the regulate the disordered immune system by adjusting the healthy qi of kidney.

Through these two processes, IgA nephropathy can be better treated. Dialysis cannot cure the disease, if you want a better improvement, you can send an email to, the doctor will give you the detailed information about the treatments. If you are free now, you can also leave a message below.
