Details: My wife had a kidney transplant 3 years ago. She has chronic kidney rejection and her creatinine level is 6.8. Her urine output has decreased. What can we do to save her kidney?

Expert Answer

IgA Nephropathy is resulted from immune disorder. Even though IgA Nephropathy patients have a same chance to get kidney transplant as patients with other types of chronic kidney disease, the recurrent rate of IgA Nephropathy after kidney transplant is still higher than others.

In addition to the relapse of IgA Nephropathy, chronic rejection is another factor to lead transplanted kidney to fail again. From your description, we can know your wife’s case conforms to the later condition. In this moment, the thing we should do is to save her transplanted kidney, lower high creatinine level and control other complications, if possible.

Since your wife’s kidney hasn’t failed completely, some treatments are still available to achieve these goals. The first step should be to regulate immune system and make it view transplanted kidney as its own organ. The second step is to remove immune complexes and prevent the relapse of IgA Nephropathy. The last step is to fix impaired kidney cells and improve patient’s overall health condition.

Immunotherapy is just such one treatment that can help IgA Nephropathy patients save their kidneys after kidney transplant. If there is such patient around you, you can suggest him or her to try this therapy with online doctor’s help.
