Is Immunotherapy helpful for treating IgA Nephropathy with 36% kidney function? 36% kidney function means IgA Nephropathy has progressed into Stage 3 kidney disease. Immunotherapy is an effective therapy of kidney disease due to immune disorder.
How can Immunotherapy treat IgA Nephropathy with 36% kidney function?
Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) divides chronic kidney disease including IgA Nephropathy into five stages. At stage 3, kidneys are functioning at 30%~44%. In this condition, patients begin to suffer from a series of symptoms and complications. To improve patients’ life quality, they need to take action to manage their kidney problem effectively.
Immunotherapy consists of six steps: scientific diagnosis, immune blockage, immune tolerance, immune clearance, immune protection and immune adjustment. These steps can help bring the following benefits for patients with IgA Nephropathy.
1. Correct diagnosis: Through advanced tests, doctors can determine the location and degree of kidney damage exactly for their patients.
2. Inhibit inflammatory reactions within kidneys: Since immune complexes can’t be removed in short time, some methods are needed to inhibit the activity of these complexes.
3. Remove immune complexes: Blood purification methods and some Chinese medicines can help remove immune complexes. As long as these pathogenic factors are removed out, the remaining kidney functioning tissues can be protected.
4. Repair damaged kidney cells: At stage 3b, a part of inherent kidney cells are only damaged, so some methods are used in Immunotherapy to prompt their recovery.
5. Prevent the relapse of IgA Nephropathy: Only if immune system works normally, can patients prevent IgA Nephropathy effectively. Therefore, patients should take some therapies to normalize their immune system.
