Is Chestnut Good for IgA Nephropathy Patients

Is Chestnut Good for IgA Nephropathy PatientsChestnut does not only taste delicious, but also has many nutrient values, such as protein, fat, fiber, vitamins and various minerals, which are helpful for maintaining the normal function of body. But is chestnut good for IgA Nephropathy patients?

Chestnut is a tonic to kidney.

-According to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, eating chestnuts regularly is helpful for kidney deficiency. It can also improve your waist and leg weakness.

-Heart disease is the main cause of death for kidney patients. The high polyunsaturated fats in walnuts is good for heart. Besides, its fiber content helps lower cholesterol level, reducing your risk of heart disease.

-When your kidney function declines, a lot of waste products build up in the blood, slowing down blood flow. And then substances in blood easily deposit, leading to stasis. Regular chestnut intake helps invigorate the circulation of blood.

-Anemia is also a common complication of kidney disease. Rich copper in chestnut helps with red blood cell formation so as to alleviate anemia. Copper is also good for bone disease and immune system.

-Though walnuts taste sweet, their fiber content makes them a low glycemic index food, so even if you have diabetes, you can add it into your diet.


If you are allergic to chestnuts, you should keep them away. And if your IgA Nephropathy is in advanced stage when your kidneys can not filter waste products from the blood, you should limit the intake of chestnut, because it is high in potassium and phosphorus. Too much potassium in blood increases your risk of heart failure and high blood phosphorus leads to skin irritation. What is more, too much chestnut consumption is not good for your weight control.
