Traditional Chinese medicine dates back to ancient China and it is an important part in medical area. In recent years, it has became more and more popular worldwide. Traditional Chinese medicine has improved the curative effects of IgA nephropathy significantly.
Conventionally, after IgA nephropathy is diagnosed, the patients have to rely on regular medications to control the symptoms. It can not be denied that immunosuppressive medications and hormones are effective in relieving the symptoms. Most of the patients can have a remission after using the medicines. However, the disease relapses so frequently. What’s more, every relapse is a big attack to renal function and can worsen renal function significantly. Therefore, routine symptomatic treatment is not enough to control IgA nephropathy at all. Traditional Chinese medicine is designed not only relieve the symptoms of IgA nephropathy, but also can control the disease from its root causes.
1. IgA nephropathy is featured with the inflammation of filtering units in kidneys. Traditional Chinese medicine can suppress the inflammation immediately and effectively to stop further damage to kidney structure.
2. Traditional Chinese medicine can degrade IgA deposits in IgA nephropathy and make them dissolve in blood. Eventually, the deposits will be filtered out of body by systemic circulation. In this way, the inducing factors of inflammatory response are eliminated.
3. IgA nephropathy is due to immune dysfunction, in which immune system attacks healthy kidney tissues mistakenly. Traditional Chinese medicine can correct the immune dysfunction and enhance immunity. Thus, it can prevent the relapse of the disease completely.
4. Traditional Chinese medicine is rich in various kinds of nutrients like minerals, trace elements, etc. These substances can provide raw material for repairing kidney structure and also can stimulate the regeneration of impaired kidney tissues and cells. In this way, it can improve renal function and stop IgA nephropathy from developing into renal failure completely.
