IgA Nephropathy: Single Kidney and High Uric Acid

IgA Nephropathy: Single Kidney and High Uric AcidQ: I have IgA Nephropathy with only single kidney. My doctor told me that my uric acid level is elevated. Pls help.

A: Thanks for your message. Do not worry. High uric acid level in IgA Nephropathy with single kidney can be reduced within normal with timely treatment. As I am not clear about your detailed disease condition, general advice is given for your reference. You can email us at with more of your illness information then can offer you specific suggestions.

Firstly, we should make it clear why you have high uric acid level with IgA Nephropathy.

Uric acid is a chemical that is created when your body breaks down purines -- substances found in certain foods and beverages such as liver, anchovies, mackerel, beer and wine. It is normally removed by the kidneys so it does not build up in the body. Normal level is defined as no more than 6 mg/dL of blood products in women, and no more than 7 mg/dL of blood in men.

Due to IgA Nephropathy, your kidneys become diseases and they fail to function adequately to eliminate uric acid from the body, resulting in high uric acid levels of blood.

Other reasons why your uric acid level might be high may include:

Medications - some medicines inhibit removal of uric acid in the urine; two of the more common ones are diuretics (water pills) and aspirin.

High purine diet - foods rich in purine include liver or other organ meats, anchovies, mackerel and herring.

Obesity and alcohol intake - these are also associated with elevated uric acid level.

After confirming the causes of high uric acid level in your IgA Nephropathy, the next step is to take effective measures to lower level and manage the kidney disease well.
