Can IgA Nephropathy Patients Get Pregnant
IgA Nephropathy is a group of chronic glomerular diseases with the same immunopathological characteristics caused by multiple causes. Most women have a question: can IgA Nephropathy patients get pregnant?
Here we remind young female patients with IgA nephropathy that under the guidance of nephrologists, the reproductive success rate of IgA nephropathy with normal blood pressure and normal renal function is relatively high. This indicates that some patients with IgA nephropathy still have the chance to have children. They should be treated regularly, and the protein and occult blood will turn negative and will not repeat for several years.
Young female patients with IgA nephropathy are infertile in the following circumstances:
1. Nephrotic Syndrome. It often results in fetal growth retardation and premature infants due to low plasma albumin.
2. The incidence of fetal growth retardation and premature birth is very high in patients with moderate renal insufficiency. The renal function of pregnant women may deteriorate progressively.
3. Secondary kidney diseases, such as lupus nephritis, can induce or aggravate the condition after childbirth, so we should be very careful. For example, Diabetic Nephropathy patients are prone to preeclampsia, premature birth, fetal malformation, macrosomia and fetal respiratory distress syndrome after childbirth, so they should not have children.
Effective treatment options are needed if you really want to have a child with IgA Nephropathy.
Experts explained that with the deepening of research, people's understanding of IgA nephropathy has changed obviously, especially the study of renal fibers. It was found that the origin of IgA nephropathy is actually caused by the pathogenic factors, which lead to the damage of renal intrinsic cells and the decline of the ability of blocking protein. In western medicine, steroids and cytotoxic drugs are mainly used in clinic, while anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant therapies are combined. However, there are many side effects of steroids. Therefore, it is suggested to adopt a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western medicine.
To achieve a better effect, systemic Chinese Medicine Treatment is recommended, for example, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Navel Therapy, etc. Those therapies can work together to eliminate waste products including IgA immune complexes from the blood via urine, sweating and bowel movement. They can also dissolve IgA immune complexes deposited on the kidneys and 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 oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery.
After about one week’s treatment, you will see floccules in urine, which are those wastes being passed out.
After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria, hematuria, swelling, high blood pressure and so on will get relieved greatly.
After about one month’s treatment, IgA Nephropathy will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
Can IgA Nephropathy patients get pregnant? Yes, but the precondition is that your disease should be under control. For more information on IgA Nephropathy treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
