IGA Nephropathy – Approaches to Improved Outcomes

30 January 2019. This is one of the most common Chronic Kidney Diseases in the world. It often results in high blood creatinine and low Glomerular Filtration Rates. It’s cause is unknown and there is no cure.

So, this got me thinking – are there any ways of improving the course and outcome of the disease? I’ve been checking the technical literature and there are some interesting approaches out there, from Prescription Steroids (which can have side effects) to Omega 3 (i.e. Fish) oils which, on the face of it, look very promising.

I’ll report here  – and probably write an article – when I have more info.

In the meantime, if there is anybody out there who has experience with IGA Nephropathy and Omega-3 oils do drop me a line at richard.corfield@linacre.ox.ac.uk (my academic email address).

I’d also be interested to hear your experiences with IGA Nephropathy and Vitamin B6.

All best, Richard
