What Foods Are Beneficial for IgA Nephropathy

What Foods Are Beneficial for IgA NephropathyWhen treating IgA Nephropathy, we should not only depend on medical treatment, but also the diet we eat. According to TCM theory, food is the best medicine for chronic disease. A balanced diet provides the essential nutrients your body needs and stimulates the immune genes in the cells so as to help you resist the disease. What foods are beneficial for IgA Nephropathy?

If your kidney function is normal, there is no need for you to follow a restricted diet. When your kidneys are impaired, you have to regulate the diet into the following aspects.

High quality protein

When your kidney function declines, waste products build up in the blood. Protein is a great source of urea. That is why kidney patients often have high blood urea level. Too much protein intakes worsens your azotemia and proteinuria. High quality protein produces less waste products. Fish, lean meat, poultry without skin and egg white are all such kind of protein. Generally speaking, 0.6 g/kg high quality protein can satisfy the need of body.

Food high in carbohydrates

Enough carbohydrate intake reduces protein metabolism, which is also good for improving azotemia. It also helps your body absorb amino acids in protein fully. Sweet potato, rice, potatoes, apple, carrot and so on are all packed with high content of carbohydrates.

Food high in vitamins

Because of limited food intake and metabolic disorder, kidney patients often have vitamin deficiency. Therefore, you should supplement those vitamins, especially vitamin C and vitamin B. Fresh vegetables and fruits such as onions, hawthorn, kiwi fruit, cranberry and peppers are all loaded with vitamins.

Minerals intake

If you have high blood pressure and swelling, you should limit the intake of salt. If your blood potassium level is high, you should restrict the intake of food high in potassium, such as bananas and oranges. If your blood phosphorus level is high, you should reduce its intake.
