IgA Nephropathy with Low Blood Protein and High Cholesterol

IgA Nephropathy with Low Blood Protein and High CholesterolIgA Nephropathy (or Berger's Disease) is caused by immune complexes of IgA that become lodged in the kidneys. IgA builds up inside the small vessels of the kidney. Structures in the kidney called glomeruli become inflamed. The course of this disease varies from person to person. Low blood protein levels and high cholesterol levels are possible in some patients with this condition.

How do low blood protein and high cholesterol develop in IgA Nephropathy?

IgAN typically restrict the ability of the kidneys to filter extra fluid and wastes from the blood. Protein and blood can leak into the urine. Some people have the disease for years with few problems. Other people develop complications. Nephrotic Syndrome is one of the complications.

Due to damage to the glomeruli, people with IgA Nephropathy may develop a group of problems including high urine protein levels, low blood protein levels, high cholesterol and lipids, and swelling (eyelids, abdomen and feet).

Treatment for IgA Nephropathy with Low Blood Protein and High Cholesterol

• Immunosuppressants. Corticosteroid medications like prednisone, and other potent immunosuppressive drugs may be used to help protect the kidney function. But, these drugs can cause serious side effects such as high blood pressure, or high blood sugar.

• Treat high cholesterol to reduce the risk of heart and blood vessel problems. A low-fat, low-cholesterol diet is often not very helpful. Statin drugs like Zocor, lipitor are prescribed to treat elevated cholesterol levels.

Clear Blood Pollution Therapy. This is the latest treatment without side effects. Through eliminating the root cause of IgA Nephropathy, patients can get the best treatment effects.
