Nephsap review: Glomerular, vascular and TI disease

In reviewing IgA Nephropathy:
Did you know that besides the pathology related prognostic signs, non traditional factors such as obesity, elevated nocturnal BP and increased uric acid levels and increased C4d mesangial depostion have been associated with a poorer prognosis in igA Nephropathy.  A mild alcohol consumption and mild elevation in bilirubin with a improved outcome.
Interesting ! Likely due to anti oxidant effects of both
