Goodpasture syndrome is an autoimmune disorder that can affect your kidneys and lungs. Usually, your immune system produces antibodies to fight against foreign or toxic substances entering your body. If you have the syndrome, the immune system will unnecessarily produce antibodies which will attack your lungs and kidneys.

The immune system considers a protein called collagen as a foreign element and produces antibodies. These antibodies might attach to the protein and create complications in your lung or kidney tissues. It can lead to fatal consequences like kidney failure or transplantation.

You might also suffer from bleeding inside your lungs. You need to be careful about the Goodpasture syndrome symptoms that might in clude:

  • Breathing difficulties 
  • High blood pressure 
  • Anaemia 
  • Swollen legs 
  • Nausea 
  • Pale skin 
  • Fatigue 
  • Blood while coughing 
  • Blood during urination 
  • A burning sensation during urination

The disease is prevalent among people between the age of 20 and 30. It might also affect people beyond 60 years, especially men. In some cases, the problems in your lungs may not be severe. However, the kidney complications and damage might be long-lasting. Along with blood, your urine might also consist of protein due to the Goodpasture disease.

If the disease is left untreated, it might lead to a kidney inflammation called glomerulonephritis. This can lead to bleeding in your lungs and ultimately death. Therefore, you must seek immediate medical consultation when experiencing Goodpasture syndrome symptoms.

Your doctor will probably ask you to go for the Glomerular Basement Membrane Antibody IgG Test. The primary objective of this test is to analyse the presence of Glomerular Basement Membrane (GBM) Antibodies, IgG. Your immune system might produce these antibodies that affect the glomerular basement membrane in your kidneys.

The Glomerular Basement Membrane Antibody IgG Test evaluates Goodpasture syndrome symptoms. Moreover, doctors use the test to examine renal failure and associated kidney complications. If they detect the presence of the GBM Antibodies in your blood, doctors may confirm that you are suffering from Goodpasture syndrome.

This test is important for understanding the condition of your kidneys and lungs. For your kidneys, the examination can aid doctors in the diagnosis of anti-glomerular basement membrane disease. Moreover, Glomerular Basement Membrane Antibody IgG Test supports the diagnosis of diseases like pulmonary haemorrhage and renal failure.

Depending upon your situation, the doctors might advise you to undergo lung or kidney treatment. Further, tests like kidney dialysis might help the doctor to develop treatment plans and prescribe the required medication.

Analyzing the IgG antibody levels might give doctors insights into other related kidney or lung diseases.

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Abnormal IgG antibody levels in the blood sample mean you might be affected by kidney and lung diseases. These might be Goodpasture syndrome or Anti-glomerular basement membrane disease. The Glomerular Basement Membrane Antibody IgG Test helps doctors in proper diagnosis and initiating treatment immediately.
Although the Glomerular Basement Membrane Antibody IgG Test is risk-free, it might cause bruising. As the arteries and veins vary from one person to another, you might experience some bleeding. However, the doctor or nurse will take the necessary medical precautions to prevent these complications.
