Question: I am 26 years old African American. My doctor thinks I have had IgA Nephropathy of a while, maybe 10 years or so. I do not have any discomforts and my proteinuria is at 5g a day. I really need to bring down protein in urine as soon as possible. Besides IgA Nephropathy, I have hypertension.
Answer: IgA Nephropathy is a benign kidney disease. Under normal circumstance, it takes decades of years to develop to kidney failure. But now your proteinuria is massive. If you can not reduce it timely, it will cause glomerulosclerosis so as to impair kidney function. Therefore, importance should be attached.
For IgA Nephropathy patients, when 24h urine protein is more than 1g, steroids are used. Now you should start steroid treatment as early as possible. If you do not want to suffer from the side effects of steroids and would like a permanent treatment, you might as well combine steroids with Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine can counteract the side effects of steroids, and it can also help repair the damaged kidneys and promote kidney function.
In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, Toxin-Removing Treatment is often used. It is a combination of Chinese medicine, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Circle Therapy, Steam Therapy, etc. They can make use of your sweat, stool and sweat to remove massive waste products from body. They can also dilate blood vessels to lower high blood pressure. Besides, they can activate blood circulation to remove stasis so as to increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to supply them with enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine to speed up kidney recovery. Besides, Chinese medicine can help regulate the abnormal immune system to reduce the production of IgA immune complexes. After about half month’s treatment, your proteinuria will decrease. High blood pressure will reduce and be stable. After about one month’s treatment, urine in protein will decrease further. With treatment going on, your kidney function will improve. And then protein can be retained in body, and proteinuria will turn negative.
The above combined treatment can help IgA Nephropathy patients bring down protein in urine, but Chinese medicine is only available in China. For more information on our hospital and our treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
