Should I Start Being on A Low Protein Diet with IgA Nephropathy

Question: Hi. I have IgA Nephropathy. My kidney specialist today told me my protein leakage level is 4 times higher than what it should be. He has told me start taking fish oil and a drug called retinol to slow down scarring. Should I start being on a low protein diet?

Should I Start Being on A Low Protein Diet with IgA NephropathyAnswer: Proteinuria is a common symptom of IgA Nephropathy. If you can not control it well, it can speed up glomerulosclerosis so as to impair your kidney function. Therefore, it is necessary for you to take immediate measures to stop it. Because the leaky kidneys are like sieves, when you eat too much protein, more protein will go out of body. That is why a low protein diet is required.

Fish oil and retinol are helpful for you to inhibit kidney inflammation and reduce protein leakage, but this is only temporary medical relief. If you can not regulate the abnormal immune system and reduce the production of IgA immune complexes and its deposition on kidneys, it is different for you to recover.

In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we often use systemic Chinese medicine treatment to help IgA Nephropathy patients to recover. Toxin-Removing Treatment is one of them. It takes advantage of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy and other Chinese medicine therapies to remove massive waste products including IgA immune complexes out of body to make internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to improve renal ischemia and anoxia. Besides, it can supply the damaged kidneys with enough essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. With the improvement of kidney function, your proteinuria will reduce and even turn negative. In our hospital, we have treated thousands of renal patients. Almost all of them get obvious treatment effect, so it is worthy a try.

Should I start being on a low protein diet with IgA Nephropathy? Yes, you should. Besides, you should take medical treatment to repair kidney damage and improve kidney function. For more information on our hospital and our treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
