IgA Nephropathy and Swollen Gums

IgA Nephropathy and Swollen GumsSwollen gums or gingival swelling is common even for general population, while IgA Nephropathy can increase the risk of swollen gums. Why do IgA Nephropathy patients have swollen gums?

In clinic, gingival swelling can be induced by myriad underlying disorders. For IgA Nephropathy patients, they often suffer from a series of problems and need to follow a restricted diet plan. Among them, some can make IgA Nephropathy patients become more susceptible to swollen gums.

Firstly, the onset of IgA Nephropathy is associated with overactive immune system. Because the immune system is overactive, the body produces a lot of IgA that builds up in the kidneys, causing IgA Nephropathy. When the body mistakenly defects the gums as foreign molecule and send white blood cells to protect the area, it will induce inflammation easily. As a result, gum swelling occurs.

Secondly, the immune disorder gives a chance for bacteria and virus to attack the body. When gums are involved in these infections, patients will find a whitish swelling in their gums.

Thirdly, as the above mentioned, patients with IgA Nephropathy often need to follow a restricted diet plan. In order to reduce the burden on kidneys, protein, sodium, fat, potassium and phosphorus should be limited in their diet plan. However, if patients can't control these nutrient intake correctly, they may suffer from malnutrition easily that can trigger swollen gums.

Lastly, unhealthy lifestyle can also cause this problem such as certain toothpastes, the use of alcohol or tobacco and mouth rinses. If you happen to have IgA Nephropathy and swollen gums, pay attention to the use of alcohol, tobacco, toothpastes and mouth rinses carefully.
