Albumin and Creatinine can predicate kidney condition

IgA nephropathy is a most occurred nephritis. Have you done a biopsy? There are about half of reports in nephritis showing as IgA nephropathy. Widely occurred as it is, we have to know how to prevent it and the prognosis.

We have to find a index that can show its prognosis.

Professor Zhang Hong in Beijing University tries to find the best index in measure and predicate IgA nephropathy’s prognosis. Between 2003 and 2013, his research team followed 438 cases of which patients suffer from IgA and collect their information such as age, gender, blood pressure, serum creatinine level and eGFR which is calculated by CKD-EPI formula. Finally, there are 124 patients arrive their final point, 26 patients develop into uremia, and, unfortunately, 3 patients died. And according to their research, which has established in CJASN in June 2016, the result is specific value of urine albumin/serum creatinine level.

As we said in title, specific value of urine albumin/serum creatinine level remains the best method and index in the prognosis of IgA Nephropathy.

Research has found that, besides urine albumin/serum creatinine level’s value, the following two indexes are also important:

One is protein in urine/serum creatinine level;

The other is 24-hour protein quality;

But the most correct and specific one is urine albumin/serum creatinine level.

So, if we suffer from IgA, we do not have to pay all our attention to albumin and blood occult, urine albumin/serum creatinine level remains the most correct index at all.
