What Can I Do to Aid in the Disappearance of Moon Face in IgA Nephropathy

Question: I have IgA Nephropathy and have taken prednisone for several months. Now I'm 2 days in from being off of prednisone. What can I do to help aid in the disappearance of moon face?

What Can I Do to Aid in the Disappearance of Moon Face in IgA NephropathyAnswer: IgA Nephropathy is the most common form of glomerulonephritis. To block kidney inflammation, prednisone is often used. But it has many side effects if you use in large dose for long-term, one of which is abnormal deposition of fat on your body. Moon face is such a phenomenon.

Generally speaking, it will disappear with the declining of prednisone. But it will take at least one year to improve it. To speed up recovery, you can take part in some exercises to lose weight, such as walking, jogging, yoga, tai chi, etc. Though your IgA Nephropathy is under control, you should also avoid strenuous activity to prevent it relapsing. You can also do some exercises to reduce fat in face.

In addition, you can take some Chinese medicine to counteract the side effects of prednisone, such as Mai Kang Composition. It can lower blood cholesterol level and reduce blood sugar level to prevent you gaining too much weight. It can also help you improve blood condition to help the damaged kidneys to repair themselves. Besides, it can strengthen your immunity to help you fight against the disease.

When you are off of prednisone, IgA Nephropathy comes back easily. If so, you have to increase the use of prednisone again, which is not good for the disappearance of moon face. To prevent the relapse of IgA Nephropathy, you can have a try at Immunotherapy, which is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can help you regulate the abnormal immune system and treat IgA Nephropathy from the root. And it can also help repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function.

If you can do the above things, moon face will gradually disappear. To acquire more personalized guidance on IgA Nephropathy, you can contact online doctor or leave a message below. We are glad to help you.
