Question: Hi, there. I have IgA Nephropathy. Two weeks ago I went snowboarding and got pretty dehydrated and ended up with a bad sore throat. I have had tingling since. I’m supposed to fly across the country this week. Is it bad to travel while IgA Nephropathy is flaring up?
Answer: IgA Nephropathy is a chronic kidney disease. In the long run, besides medical treatment, you have to adjust your lifestyle. For example, you should have a good rest, and prevent infections. Over fatigue and infections are the most common cause of relapse for IgA Nephropathy patients. Now your disease is flaring up. If you do not pay attention, the disease may get worse. Therefore, you had better not travel around before the disease gets under control.
Treatment for IgA Nephropathy
Conventional treatment for IgA Nephropathy is to take steroids and immunosuppressants. Those medications can relieve renal inflammation and reduce proteinuria, but the disease gets relapse easily, because they can not repair kidney damage and promote renal function. Here we recommend you try a systemic treatment. It is Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy.
This treatment is made up of 9 therapies, namely
1. Double plasma exchange therapy
2. Chinese medicine detoxification therapy (oral Chinese medicine)
3. Chinese medicine for activating blood circulation (external therapies)
4. Cell (autoimmune cell) infusion therapy
5. Cytokine infusion therapy
6. Negative oxygen ion therapy
7. Ozone Therapy
8. Micronutrient and vitamin supplements
9. Good living habit
Some are to eliminate toxins from the cells, tissue fluid and blood. Some are to clear up stasis. Some are to make blood alive. Some are to eliminate cytokines that can trigger immunological stress reaction in the blood. And some are to balance nutrients in the body. And some are to reinforce the therapeutic effect. After about one week’s treatment, you will see floccules in urine, which are those wastes being passed out. After about half month’s treatment, symptoms such as proteinuria and hematuria will decrease or even become normal. After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
Is it bad to travel while IgA Nephropathy is flaring up? In some cases, it is bad. If you do not want your disease to get worse, you had better wait until you have a permanent control of your disease. For more information on IgA Nephropathy treatment, please leave a message or contact online doctor.
