My daughter was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy two years ago and I am still overwhelmed. Does it always end in needing a transplant at some point?
Hi, I am so sorry to hear your daughter is suffering from IgA Nephropathy. How about her illness condition now? Hope she feels better. As for your question: does IgA Nephropathy always end in needing a kidney transplant? I’d like to say “No, not always”.
IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease and the onset of it is closely related with our immune condition. It progresses over time if left uncontrolled and finally kidney failure will be caused, dialysis or kidney transplant will be needed. However, this does not mean every patient with IgA Nephropathy will definitely suffer from kidney failure finally. According to medical statistic, there is a slow progression to chronic renal failure in 25% -30% of cases during a period of 20 years and this means your daughter has a great chance to avoid kidney transplant. Therefore, please do not worry and help your daughter keep being optimistic and in good mood.
Besides, IgA Nephropathy has a high reoccurrence rate after kidney transplant, so for patients with kidney failure caused by IgA Nephropathy, kidney transplant is not a good option. For kidney failure patients who still have a certain kidney function, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is recommended. It is a herbal treatment and causes no side effects during the whole process. For your daughter, what is her current kidney condition? While controlling IgA Nephropathy symptoms, please remember to protect residual kidney tissues and repair injured kidney intrinsic cells. In this way, her kidney condition can be improved greatly and she is very likely to avoid kidney failure and kidney transplant.
