Prednisone Treatment for IgA Nephropathy Patients

Prednisone Treatment for IgA Nephropathy PatientsCharacterized by recurrent hematuria and different degrees of proteinuria, IgA Nephropathy patients have to accept some corticosteroid therapy. Prednisone treatment is just one choice. However, because of its side effects or other reasons, IgA Nephropathy patients may want to find some alternative treatments to prednisone.

How does prednisone help treat IgA Nephropathy?

IgA Nephropathy occurs when a lot of immunoglobulin A (IgA) builds up in the glomerular mesangial area. These immune complexes cause inflammatory reactions within kidneys, resulting in kidney damage. Prednisone is used as anti-inflammatory medication, so it is able to suppress inflammatory reactions. Therefore, this type of corticosteroid can achieve the following effects.

- Reduce patients’ proteinuria

- Ease their swelling

- Slow down the progress of IgA Nephropathy

- Curb inflammatory reactions within patients’ kidneys

Even though prednisone can produce a series of effects for IgA Nephropathy, it also carries a risk of side effects. Therefore, it is necessary to work with your doctor or doctor online to weigh benefits of prednisone against its risks.

Side effects of prednisone treatment for IgA Nephropathy

Since prednisone works through weakening patients’ immune system, side effects of prednisone include:

- Patients are prone to getting infections

- Nausea and vomiting, poor appetite or fatigue

- Shortness of breath, severe pain in upper stomach

- Slow growth

- Weight gain, high blood sugar and bone disease

If prednisone fails to work or patients suffer from many side effects, they must want to get alternative treatments.

Today, we are here to introduce a new treatment plan, which is called Immunotherapy. Compared with simple medicines, it consists of six steps. They are immune diagnosis, immune tolerance, immune blockage, immune clearance, immune adjustment and immune protection. Through these six steps, immune complexes which accumulate in glomerular mesangial area can be discharged out the body, and immune system is normalized. That’s to say, patients’ illness condition is controlled from the root.
