IgA Nephropathy with Respiratory Infection and Gross Hematuria

IgA Nephropathy with Respiratory Infection and Gross HematuriaQuite a number of IgA Nephropathy patients say frequent respiratory infection and gross hematuria make them worried, because these symptoms may worsen their medical condition. Then, how to manage respiratory infection and gross hematuria becomes these patients’ big concern.

IgA Nephropathy is one kidney problem related closely to immune disorder and deposits of IgA in kidneys. With the incidence of 30%-40%, recurrent gross hematuria is often the first characteristic of IgA Nephropathy, and it usually occurs after 1-2 days of respiratory infection onset.

Here, we can know both of these two symptoms are commonly seen among patients with IgA Nephropathy. Besides, respiratory infections have a link with amygdalitis, while gross hematuria is due to pathological changes of glomerular mesangial cells caused by deposits of IgA.

Based on the causes, patients should choose correct treatment plans to alleviate their symptoms and prevent the aggravation of patients’ illness condition. Today, we invite one kidney expert to give out several treatment plans for easing these problems.

Do tonsillectomy: If respiratory infections occur again and again, tonsillectomy is helpful to ease patients’ infection. This method can also help reduce these patients’ proteinuria and protect kidney function. However, if patients don’t have frequent respiratory infection, tonsillectomy will do nothing.

Take small dose of immunosuppressants in the long time: This can both inhibit the activation of IgA and stop inflammatory reactions and reduce the side effects of immunosuppressants, but these medications can eliminate IgA complexes and normalize patients’ immune system.

Clear Blood Pollution Therapy: Compared with conventional Immunosuppressants, this treatment focuses on eliminating IgA complexes, repairing damaged kidney cells and correcting patients’ immune system. However, patients should have enough patience to cooperate with doctors. ( To learn more about this therapy, you can send email to or consult the online doctor directly.)

Besides medical treatments, patients should also have more rest, develop a healthy diet plan and keep a good mood. All of these can help IgA Nephropathy patients fight against their respiratory infections and gross hematuria.
