2015-04-03 16:21

Can Males not be Affected if They Got Alport SyndromeAlport Syndrome or hereditary nephritis is a genetic disorder, characterized by glomerulonephritis, end-stage kidney disease, eye and hearing loss. In women, the disorder is usually mild, with few or no symptoms. In men, the symptoms are more severe and get worse faster. Then, can males not be affected if they got Alport Syndrome ?

Alport Syndrome is an inherited form of kidney inflammation (nephritis). It is caused by a mutation in a gene for a protein in the connective tissue, called collagen. The disorder is uncommon, as we mentioned at the beginning, it most often affects males, women can pass the gene for the disorder to their children, even if they have no symptoms.

How to treat this Alport Syndrome ?

Until now, there is no good cure for this disease, all the treatments are symptomatic. Patients are advised on how to manage the complications of kidney failure and the spilling of protein in the urine that develops is often treated with ACE inhibitors. As we all know high blood pressure will make the disease more complex and it will speed up the progression of this disease, so control high blood pressure is very important for the treatment of this disease.

Once kidney failure has developed, patients are given dialysis or can benefit from a kidney transplant, although this can cause problems. The body may reject the new kidney as it contains normal type IV collagen, which may be recognized as foreign by the immune system.
