How Much Salt Should I Have with IgA Nephropathy

How Much Salt Should I Have with IgA NephropathyIn order to control the state of illness, kidney patients are often required to follow a low salt diet. How much salt should I have with IgA Nephropathy? Many patients can not help asking such a question. Now let’s have a quick look.

Why IgA Nephropathy patients are advised to restrict salt intake?

High blood pressure is a common complication of IgA Nephropathy patients. It does not only cause further damage to the kidneys, but also increase your risk of heart disease. Salt intake makes your blood pressure go up further. It also increases your desire for water so as to worsen edema. Therefore, you should limit the intake of salt.

How much salt should I have with IgA Nephropathy?

Generally speaking, you should limit the salt intake into 6 g per day. But when we cook meal, there is already about 3 g salt content in the food, which means you only need to take 3 g salt per day. If you have severe edema and high blood pressure, it is better for you to eat salt free food. In fact, how much salt you should have depends on your medical condition, such as blood pressure, edema and 24 h urine output. If you would like an accurate answer, a dietitian can help you. You can also send your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com. Our doctors are also glad to help you.

In the daily, you should pay attention to the food high in salt, such as canned food, pickles and condiments. Though low salt makes your meal tasteless, you should stick to it. There are some ways to help you control the salt intake, such as use soybean sauce to replace salt. 3 g salt equals to 15 ml sauce.

Besides salt, IgA Nephropathy patients should follow a low protein, low fat and high vitamin diet. A balanced diet helps you control IgA Nephropathy and live a normal life.
