IgA nephropathy care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

Specialists from nephrology, hypertension and pathology work together in the diagnosis and treatment of people with IgA nephropathy. They also work with your local doctor to coordinate follow-up care.

The large number of nephrologists at Mayo Clinic allows some doctors to subspecialize in specific aspects of kidney medicine, including glomerular conditions such as IgA nephropathy. These specialists have the skills and experience to quickly and accurately identify the cause of your problem.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Mayo Clinic is one of the few centers to specialize in iothalamate clearance testing, which uses a special contrast agent to track how well your kidneys are filtering wastes. Mayo Clinic's dedicated Renal Biopsy Laboratory uses the latest techniques to diagnose and treat IgA nephropathy.
