Accurate diagnosis is made exclusively by kidney biopsy. After special staining of kidney tissue taken by biopsy, IgA complexes can be observed under a microscope. The disease is treated with systemic glucocorticoids and ACE inhibitors, which reduce complex deposition and reduce excretion The success of this therapy is not always guaranteed and therefore there is a need for new drugs. honey is one of the international centers testing the effectiveness of a new drug from the group of ACE inhibitors, which in previous trials has proven to be more effective than currently available ACE inhibitors.
