Can I Eat Rice with IgA Nephropathy

Can I Eat Rice with IgA Nephropathy“I am an IgA Nephropathy patient. Can I eat rice?” Rice is the food staple in eastern Asian countries, such as China, Japan and Korea. Though people are no stranger to rice, do you know its health benefits? When diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy, patients often pay more attention to their diet and begin to choose food good to control their state of illness. The question I list at the very beginning is one of them. If you have the same doubt, please go on reading. For more information about IgA Nephropathy diet, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.

Health benefits of rice for IgA Nephropathy patients

Generally speaking, IgA Nephropathy patients can eat rice because of the following health benefits.

Ease edema

Edema and accumulation of waste often occurs when kidney function declines. A three moth old rice plant’s husks are said to have diuretic properties. It can help you lose excess water weight and eliminate toxins from the body like uric acid.

Provide energy

Because of proteinuria, IgA Nephropathy are often asked to follow a low protein diet. Besides, in order to lower cholesterol level, fat is also limited. Protein, fat and carbohydrates are the three sources of energy. To ensure energy supply, you have to consume enough carbohydrates. Rice is a good source of carbohydrates.

Good for cardiovascular system

Rice is cholesterol free. And it is also low in sodium, so it is considered one of the best foods for those suffering cardiovascular disease. Besides, rice bran oil can promote cardiovascular strength by reducing cholesterol levels in the body.

Rice has other health benefits. Space limited, so we do not list all of them here. However, white rice is considered a high glycemic index food. If you have both diabetes and IgA Nephropathy, you had better limit the intake of white rice. But you can eat moderate brown rice. With online doctor, you can learn more information.
