Can Ketosteril Help Treat IgA Nephropathy

IgA Nephropathy,IgA Nephropathy TreatmentMost often, IgA Nephropathy presents asymptomatic hematuria and proteinuria. If untreated effectively, IgAN will aggravate into kidney failure finally. Ketosteril is one medication that can help do something for IgA Nephropathy patients.

IgA Nephropathy

As we know, IgA Nephropathy is caused by autoimmune disorder. In this condition, immune complexes can’t be eliminated normally via circulatory system and deposit in glomerular mesangial area. Then, these substances trigger inflammatory reactions and damage glomeruli, kidney filters. When glomeruli can’t play their filtration function properly, protein and red blood cells will leak into urine, forming proteinuria and hematuria.


This drug is mainly used to prevent and treat protein metabolic disorder caused by chronic renal insufficiency. To make ketosteril work correctly, patients should follow a low-protein diet that requires adults to take in 40g of protein or less every day. Other notice is that this medication is commonly recommended when patients’ glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is less than 25 ml/min.

How does ketosteril help treat IgA Nephropathy?

Since ketosteril can provide essential amino acid and reduce the intake of protein, it can at least reduce the burden on kidneys and help slow down the progress of IgA Nephropathy. Additionally, this drug also has another two obvious effects for patients with IgA Nephropathy.

One is to alleviate proteinuria. With the decline of protein intake, less protein leaks into urine, so proteinuria can be eased effectively. This in turn can help slow the progress of kidney damage. The other one is to reduce serum creatinine level. Many kidney patients know this drug, because of its lowering-creatinine property.

Here, we should remind all IgA Nephropathy patients: although ketosteril can help manage IgA Nephropathy complications, it isn’t enough to treat this disease from the root. If you want to get recovery from this disease, some treatments that can rebuild kidney structure and immune system are also needed. Consult the Doctor online to see which treatment is best for you.
