Topics: IgA Nephropathy

Details: Hi doctor. I am of age 30, and last week my biopsy results showed IgA Nephropathy with 61% renal failure. Now, I have started steroids. Can I live normal life? What is my life expectancy?

Expert Answer

IgA Nephropathy is one kidney disorder that immunoglobulin A (IgA) deposits in glomerular mesangial area and causes inflammatory reactions. Therefore, the abnormal immune system is the root cause of IgA Nephropathy.

61% renal failure means your 61% of kidney functioning tissues are damaged, and your kidney function level only remains 39%. According to this, your IgA Nephropathy must aggravate into stage 3B kidney disease. For patients with IgA Nephropathy, they indeed have chance to get complete remission in clinic but many factors affect their prognosis and life expectancy.

In this condition, the urgent thing we need to do is to repair the reversible kidney cells, regulate immune system and expel deposits of IgA out of the body. Here, you can try Clear Blood Pollution Therapy or Immunotherapy.

Both of them are helpful to treat IgA Nephropathy. However, this doesn’t mean you can use them with your own willing. To learn which treatment plan is good for you and how it will prolong your life span, consult the doctor online. They will give you the answer timely.
