Treatment List for Membranous nephropathy, idiopathic

The list of treatments mentioned in various sources for Membranous nephropathy, idiopathic includes the following list. Always seek professional medical advice about any treatment or change in treatment plans.

  • Treatment of idiopathic membranous nephropathy is complex, and is influenced by the severity of the kidney damage, the age of the patient, and any other health problems that the patient might have. Treatments include:
    • Observation for patients with asymptomatic proteinuria
    • Immunosuppressive therapy for progressive disease or symptomatic nephrotic syndrome - Chlorambucil, cyclosporine, tacrolimus, cyclophosphamide
    • Corticosteroids - not effective when used alone, but used in combination with immunosuppressants
    • Diuretics - may be used in situation of volume overload
    • Avoidance of medications that may contribute to further renal damage - NSAID's, IV contrast
    • Smoking cessation - people who continue to smoke progress to end stage renal failure sooner
    • Close management of high blood pressure
    • Use of ACE inhibitors - in patients both with and without proteinuria, has been shown to slow the progression of renal failure
    • Dietary management
      • Protein restriction - may have a role in slowing the progress of renal failure, and is important to manage uremic symptoms in advanced failure, but needs to be managed carefully to avoid malnutrition
      • Salt and water restriction as necessary to manage fluid overload
      • Phosphate restriction
      • Potassium restriction as necessary
    • Management of chronic renal failure associated with membranous nephropathy
      • Erythropoietin agonists - for management of anaemia associated with chronic renal failure
      • Phosphate binders - for management of hyperphosphatemia in chronic renal failure
      • Calcium supplements - for hypocalcaemia associated with chronic renal failure
      • Calcitriol and other Vitamin D supplements - for hypocalcaemia and hyperparathyroidism associated with chronic renal failure
      • Sodium bicarbonate - for acid-base disturbance
    • Renal dialysis - used when there are manifestations of uraemia and the GFR is < 10mL/min
    • Renal transplantation
