What Is the Best Food for IgA Nephropathy

What Is the Best Food for IgA NephropathySo far there is no cure for IgA Nephropathy. What we can do is to control its symptoms and slow down the progression to kidney failure. Besides medical treatment, we should pay attention to the dietary treatment. Scientific diet provides the nutrients our body needs to maintain its function. It can also reduce production of waste products so as to decrease the workload of kidneys so as to help you preserve the remaining kidney function. What is the best food for IgA Nephropathy?

Moderate protein intake

People can not live without protein, but if you have proteinuria and kidney function impairment, you should limit the protein intake. The amount of protein intake depends on your kidney function. And you should choose some high quality protein to eat, such as lean meat and egg white.

Salt management

Without salt, you will become weak. And too much salt will make your edema and high blood pressure worse. Thus IgA Nephropathy patients should know how to eat salt. Generally speaking, no more than 3 g salt intake is OK and keep away canned food, pickles and some other food high in salt.

Fresh vegetables and fruits

Vegetables and fruits are good source of vitamins, dietary fiber and various minerals. Those elements are good for your health. For example, vitamins boost immune system and fiber relieves constipation. Therefore, you should add more vegetables and fruits into your diet. But when your blood potassium level or phosphorus level is high, you should pay attention to some vegetables and fruits, such as banana, kiwi, etc.
