Can I Eat Egg White with IgA Nephropathy

Can I Eat Egg White with IgA Nephropathy“I have IgA Nephropathy, can I eat egg white?” People often have a doubt about their diet when diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy and the doctor requires them to follow a renal-friendly diet. Indeed reasonable diet plays an important role in treating IgA Nephropathy. If you want to know the answer to the question we refer just now, go on reading.

IgA Nephropathy patients can eat egg white.

Protein is an important component of body, for example, muscle, enzyme and antibodies are all protein. Every day you have to eat them to meet protein needs. Egg white is considered to be a kind of high quality protein, which contains all the essential amino acids your body needs each day to perform day-to-day functions. Therefore, IgA Nephropathy patients can eat egg white. But it does not mean you can eat egg white optionally.

How to eat egg white healthily with IgA Nephropathy?

Less protein intake can not meet the physical need and you may feel weak, have a poor immune system and malnutrition, etc, while excessive protein intake can not be absorbed by the body, which will become a burden to the kidneys, because they have to work hard to remove them from the body. Overwork may worsen your medical condition.

How many egg whites you can eat with IgA Nephropathy depends on your weight and kidney function. If your kidney function is still normal or there is only slight kidney damage, protein intake should be managed into 0.8-1 g/kg per day. When in stage 4, you can take 0.6 g/kg protein a day. In the end stage, protein intake is about 0.4 g/kg protein. When you are on dialysis, 1.2 g/kg protein is OK. You can also figure out how many egg whites you can eat.

Other high quality protein

You can use other high quality protein to replace egg white, such as lean meat, fish, poultry without skin, milk, etc.

The personalized diet suggestion should be made according to your accurate medical condition. You can send the medical test report to igacure@gmail.com. And then our doctors can help you.
