Question: I have HSP and IgA Nephropathy. Is there something I can do to reverse the damage to kidneys?
Answer: HSP is short for Henoch Schönlein Purpura. It is also known as IgA vasculitis. In the kidney, HSP is characterized by IgA deposits in a part of the glomerulus where blood is filtered, while IgA Nephropathy is also characterized by it. That is why many people mistake HSP and IgA Nephropathy. But both of them are related with the abnormal immune system. Therefore, if you want to reverse the damage to kidneys, you need to adjust the abnormal immune system.
Treatment for HSP and IgA
Conventional treatment only aims at controlling symptoms. For example, if you have proteinuria, corticosteroid medications such as prednisone or prednisolone will be used. If you have swelling, water pills may be used. If you have joint pain, anti-inflammatory medications may be used.
These medications are helpful, but they can not adjust the abnormal immune system, so it is difficult for you to have a permanent control of the disease. Once you have infections or get tired, the disease comes back. Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy.
It is made up of 9 therapies, such as Plasma Exchange, oral Chinese medicine, external therapies (like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Medicated Bath), cytokine infusion therapy, negative oxygen ion therapy, ozone therapy, good habit, etc. Those therapies can work together to eliminate wastes including those IgA immune complexes from the blood and kidneys. They can also relieve renal inflammation to control the disease from getting worse. Besides, they can improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so as to provide them with enough essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. After about one week’s treatment, you will see your urine become cloudy due to the existence of wastes. After about half month’s treatment, your symptoms such as weakness, proteinuria, swelling, hematuria, anemia, red spots on skin and so on will get alleviated. Indexes such as creatinine, BUN and uric acid level will decrease. After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
