The development of IgA Nephropathy varies considerably from person to person. Some patients have the disease for years with few problems. As a matter of fact, many cases may go undiagnosed. Other patients develop one or more of the following complications of IgA Nephropathy:
High blood pressure
Damage to your kidneys from IgA deposits can raise your blood pressure, and high blood pressure can cause further damage to the kidneys. They influence each other.
Acute kidney failure
If your kidneys lose their filtering ability due to IgA deposits, the waste products and toxins accumulate quickly in the blood. When this happens, you may need to undergo temporary dialysis.
Chronic kidney failure
If IgA Nephropathy can not be controlled well, the illness condition will keep worsening. The kidneys will gradually stop functioning. More and more waste products and toxins build up in the blood, a series of symptoms occur, such as high creatinine, anemia, nausea, vomiting and so on. in such cases, permanent dialysis or a kidney transplant will be chosen to sustain life.
It is a group of problems that can be caused by damage to the glomeruli, including lots of proteinuria, low blood protein levels, high cholesterol and swelling of your eyelids, feet and abdomen.
The damaged kidneys may be failed to secrete enough erythropoietin (EPO) which is a glycoprotein steroid that controls erythropoiesis, or red blood cell production. Too much wastes and toxins accumulating in the blood can shorten the lifespan of red blood cells. The factors above can cause anemia. If it occurs, patients may have fatigue, nausea, vomiting, poor appetite and other symptoms.
Besides these, IgA Nephropathy patients may also have cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, which is because the wastes and toxins in the blood can flow to every corner of the body and bring damage to all kinds of systems of the body.
