Details: I have IgA Nephropathy and get a chronic infection in sinus. Will I die from IgA Nephropathy?

Expert Answer

IgA Nephropathy has a close link with immune disorder that causes extra IgA to build up in glomeruli and induce inflammation. That is to say, IgA Nephropathy patients’ immune system is disturbed. Immune disorder can give bacteria and virus more chance to attack the body, resulting in infections in various regions. Sinus may also be affected by infections.

In mild cases, IgA Nephropathy can get remission spontaneously, while in most cases, IgA Nephropathy is difficult to treat. That is to say, most patients with this type of kidney disease will have kidney failure finally.

Before aggravating to end stage kidney failure, IgA Nephropathy commonly doesn’t cause severe or life-threatening complications. In this time, patients may have blood urine, proteinuria, high blood pressure, high creatinine level, infection, and some other problems. Fortunately, most of these problems can be managed through diet modification and correct medications.

However, if IgA Nephropathy has developed into kidney failure, it will become quite serious. In uremic stage, some complications such as cardiovascular disease, metabolic acidosis, high potassium level, edema in lungs, etc, all can become life-threatening.

From the above analysis, we can know the key to surviving from IgA Nephropathy is to slow down or even stop the progression of this disease. If you need any help, just consult online.
