Why Does Glomerulonephritis Relapse after Kidney Transplant

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-03-05 17:04

Approximately 30 to 50 percent of kidney transplant patients recipients have glomerulonephritis as the underlying cause of end stage renal failure. Relapse of glomerulonephritis is an important cause of renal allograft failure.

Why does glomerulonephritis relapse after kidney transplant?

Glomerulonephritis is a group of kidney disease characterized by inflammation of filtering units of the kidneys called glomeruli. It is an immunologically medicated kidney disorder, in which the immune system attacks the healthy kidney cells by mistake.

Kidney Transplant is a major surgery in which the diseased kidney is replaced with new kidney. However, the immune dysfunction can not be corrected by the transplant. The abnormal activity of immune system will cause damage to the new kidney again. In the cases of graft failure, some immune complexes can be detected in the transplanted kidney.

How to treat glomerulonephritis if kidney transplant fails?

Treatment of recurrent glomerulonephritis in the renal allograft, plasma exchange may be effective in reducing proteinuria in patients, but immunosuppressive therapy is generally ineffective in the prevention or treatment of recurrent disease. Control blood pressure is effective in retarding the rate of deterioration in renal allograft function. If the new kidney fails completely, dialysis or kidney transplant will be prescribed again.

The above are the general supportive treatments for glomerulonephritis after kidney transplant fails. Is there any alternative treatment?

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an alternative treatment for the recurred glomerulonephritis. On one hand, it can suppress the abnormal activity of immune system to stop more damage to the new kidney. On the other hand, it can activate the self-healing system of the body to restore the impaired kidney structure and improve renal function significantly.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can treat glomerulonephritis from its causes. Thereby, it can prevent the failure of the new kidney.
