IgA Nephropathy can be divided into primary and secondary. In this article, we will talk about IgA Nephropathy secondary to purpura.
The initiating factor of purpura often is allergy. What is the allergen in your case?
Purpura is an immune disorder. In right condition, when some harmful substances invade into body as antigens, antibodies will be produced by immune system to defeat them. However, in purpura, the immune system fails to function normally. As a result, extra antibodies like IgA are produced.
This abnormal immune response can cause small-vessel vasculitis, thus leading to joint pain, purpura on skin, stomach pain and so on.
When IgA and other immune complexes deposit in kidneys, it will cause inflammation of glomeruli. Glomeruli are the basic functional units of kidneys and they function to filter blood and maintain those useful substances in body like protein. However, when glomeruli become inflamed, protein and blood will leak through them, ending up in urine.
Therefore, to treat IgA Nephropathy and purpura, it is important to eliminate those immune complexes from blood and suppress the inflammation in body.
Treatment for IgA Nephropathy secondary to purpura
Steroid can suppress the inflammation temporarily, but it can not remove those harmful substances from body. That is why you can not get a good recovery. Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy. This is a systemic treatment, which includes a variety of therapies, such as plasma exchange, oral Chinese medicine, external Chinese medicine, nutrient and vitamin supplement, ozone therapy, cytokine infusion therapy, etc. Those therapies can work together to eliminate waste products including those immune complexes from the blood and kidneys. They can also restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. Moreover, they can improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as nutrient and vitamins can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery.
-After about week’s treatment, you will see a lot of sediments in urine, which are those wastes and immune complexes being passed out.
-After about half month’s treatment, red spots on skin will become light. Joint pain, weakness, high blood pressure, proteinuria, hematuria and so on will get relieved.
-After about one month’s treatment, purpura and IgA Nephropathy will be brought under control.
