2014-04-16 08:27

IgA nephropathy is a kind of glomerulonephritis with deposits of the immunoglobulin A (IgA) in mesangial area. The patients with this kidney disorder often experience a number of discomforts like flank pain. What is the treatment for IgA nephropathy with flank pain?

IgA nephropathy with flank pain

IgA nephropathy is an autoimmune disorder. In right condition, the immune system can protect the body against foreign harmful substances. However, in autoimmune disorder, the immune system fails to distinguish the body tissues and cells from the foreign harmful substances. The abnormal immune response can cause IgA and some other antibodies to deposit in mesangial area. If these deposits can not be cleared away, they will cause inflammation of kidneys.

Flank pain in IgA Nephropathy can be attributed to several causes. A common cause of flank pain is damage in kidney structure. If the inflammation can not be controlled, it will cause scarring and necrosis of kidney tissues and cells. This may cause flank pain.

Another possible cause of flank pain in IgA nephropathy is kidney infection. Immunosuppressive agents are commonly prescribed to control the inflammation in kidneys. However, these drugs also can lower the immunity at the same time. As a result, this often makes the patients prone to infection. If the kidney is involved, kidney infection may occur. Flank pain can be a sign of kidney infection in IgA nephropathy.
