Hi welcome to healthcare magic,
IgA Nephropathy is the most commonest cause of Hematuria i.e bloodstained urine.In very few children it progresses to nephritis . Yes children who develop nephritis can have hypertension too . Treatment is just symptomatic i.e salt restriction , taking drugs to control hypertension and a regular check up to see the functioning of kidneys. There is no permanant cure though it can be controlled .Yeah there has been reported data that fish oils offer some benefit .

My son was diagnosed with an IGA deficiency at the age of 3. His level was at a 12. We had him tested again when he was 7 and his level went up to a 17. We had him tested again at the age of almost 9 and his levels went back down to a 12. Question #1 What is a normal level of IGA ? Question #2 Why would his levels rise and fall? Question #3 is it common to have stomach problems with IGA deficiency. No one can figure out why his stomach hurts all the time. It has been 2 years with a belly ache now.

I walked upstairs and was slightly out of breath. I sat down and noticed my heart rate was elevated but no pain or discomfort. I then noticed I could see my heart rate in my eyes as it caused them to pulse. I'm just wondering if that is a problem.
