Question: I was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy in 2008. My kidney function is at 37%. I need to reduce protein in urine to save my kidneys. Please suggest.
Answer: Proteinuria is a factor that affects your prognosis, so it is indeed necessary for you to reduce proteinuria to save your kidneys. What is your 24h urine protein? If it is not very high, you can take fish oil and ACEI or ARBs to help reduce it. If it is high, you may have to take steroids and immunosuppressants to inhibit kidney inflammation and decrease proteinuria.
However, the above treatment is only temporary medical relief. When you taper or stop the medications, protein will appear in urine again. If you want to get a permanent control of it, you need to regulate the abnormal immune system and repair kidney damage.
Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment. This is a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which is consisted of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Navel Therapy, Mai Kang Mixture and so on to eliminate waste products including those IgA immune complexes and extra fluid from body to reduce kidney inflammation and make internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also expand blood vessels to reduce high blood pressure. Moreover, it can improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys, and then oxygen, nutrients, active ingredients of medicine and other essential elements can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. After about one week’s treatment, you will see floccules in urine, which are those wastes. After about half month’s treatment, you will feel energetic. Your proteinuria will decrease. High blood pressure will go down. Hematuria will disappear. After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and your renal function will be promoted. With treatment going on, your proteinuria will eventually turn negative.
