Immunoglobulin A nephropathy is the most common glomerular disease in China, accounting for about 20 % to 47 % of primary glomerular diseases. Xiyin liangxue decoction is a common experience in the treatment of Immunoglobulin A nephropathy in recent years. The research of this formula in the clinical treatment of Immunoglobulin A nephropathy has achieved obvious curative effect. This article aims to study the protective mechanism of xiyin liangxue decoction on Immunoglobulin A nephropathy rats and analyzes and compares the advantages of xiyin liangxue decoction and western medicine in the treatment of Immunoglobulin A nephropathy rats with Sprague dawley nephropathy rats. The results of the study showed that after treatment of Immunoglobulin A nephropathy rats with xiyin liangxue decoction, the renal function of the rats in the treatment group was significantly improved, the expressions of alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase increased by 19 % and 5 % and the expressions of albumin and globulin increased by 19 % and 25 %. In addition, in the treatment group, the number of urine red blood cells, urine protein and urine mannose binding lectin decreased by 29 %, 13 % and 25 %, respectively. The urine volume of rats in the high dose group was significantly reduced by 13 % and the expressions of blood urea nitrogen and blood creatinine increased 22 % and 8 % respectively. After treatment with xiyin liangxue decoction, the cure rate of experimental Immunoglobulin A rats reached 24 % and 33 % had significant improvement. It can be seen that xiyin liangxue decoction has a good clinical treatment effect on Immunoglobulin A nephropathy rats.
