IgA Nephropathy Is Not That Difficult to Treat

Is IgA Nephropathy a disease difficult to treat? Because this is the most common glomerulonephritis in the world, a lot of patients have ever asked such a question before.

First of all, let’s have a general overview of IgA Nephropathy.

1. It usually do not have any obvious symptoms.

2. It has many reflections, such as single blood urine, or asymptomatic hematuria or proteinuria. It can be presented as nephritis or Nephrotic Syndrome.

3. It is progressive, but this course is very slow.

Recently an IgA Nephropathy stage 3 patient Mrs.Wang was discharged from our hospital. She has been with this disease for nearly 8 years.

8 years ago, blood urine was presented, but because of no other symptoms, she was diagnosed with chronic nephritis. After 6 years’ treatment, occult blood did not vanish, on the contrary, proteinuria appeared. One year ago, her urine protein was as high as 3.5g, thereby she was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. Having no choice, she did renal biopsy, which showed IgA Nephropathy stage 3. In the following years, her urine protein fluctuated. In good cases, her proteinuria decreased to 2g.
IgA Nephropathy Is Not That Difficult to Treat

From Mrs.Wang’s story, we can get the answer to the question we put forward in the first sentence. IgA Nephropathy is really very difficult to treat. But is this fact true?

IgA Nephropathy have a lot of reflections and types, but its treatment is simplex, only to depend on immunosuppressants or steroids. But the effect is not that satisfying.

In fact, as long as you adjust the medication strategies according to symptoms and pathology, IgA Nephropathy is not that difficult to treat.
