IgA Nephropathy on Cellcept with Hair Loss

IgA Nephropathy on Cellcept with Hair LossQ: Hello, I am on cellcept to treat my IgA Nephropathy. Now I'm experiencing hair loss and it is thinning and falling out so much. Pls give me advice. Thanks!

A: Thanks for your message. Hair loss is one of the adverse effects of cellcept. Do not worry. You can chat with our online doctor directly if you would like more specific free suggestions!

As well all know, IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disorder (involving the body's immune system). Due to disordered immune system, IgA (an antibody which usually helps the body to fight infections) deposited in the glomerulus, where they cause inflammation and scarring. In 1/3 of cases, it goes on to cause progressive severe damage to the kidneys.

Dugs such as cellcept is used to suppress the immune system as well as help relieve symptoms like protein in urine. So kidney patient's condition will get better in short term.

Unfortunately, this curative effect is temporary. Under treatment with this medicine, patients often suffer from relapse of IgA Nephropathy easily. They may also be affected by some unwanted side effects such as hair loss, increased susceptibility to infections, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, headache, depression and so on.

In order to treat your IgA Nephropathy better and get rid of the side effects of cellcept, you are suggested to find alternative natural remedy which can not only control your symptoms but also treat the kidney disease from the root cause. That is, clear up the IgA deposits in the kidneys and restore the overall kidney function. Only in this way, you can get satisfied treatment effect.
