How To Extend The Life Of Patients With IgA Nephropathy

How To Extend The Life Of Patients With IgA NephropathyPatients with IgA nephropathy may want to know how to extend their life. In fact, they should take positive actions in three aspects, and that are their treatment, their diet and their life habits, which can make significant influences on their health condition.


IgA nephropathy is divided into the primary and the secondary. In the treatment, to patients with primary IgA nephropathy, their treatment should be taken towards two aspects. On one hand, patients should control their complications, like hypertension, blood urine, proteinuria, etc. On the other hand, patients should treat the lesion in their kidneys. While to patients with the secondary IgA nephropathy, except for the two aspects above, they should also treat the reasons of nephropathy, and that may be purpura, hepatic disease, tumour, etc.
