A Healthy Diet for IgA Nephropathy

A Healthy Diet for IgA NephropathyPatients with IgA Nephropathy should not only concentrate on treatment, but diet in daily life. A healthy diet is very useful to help treatment for IgA Nephropathy. Then, what diet should patients with IgA Nephropathy have? Here we will give some suggestions:

1. A low salt diet.

High blood pressure is a very common symptom of IgA Nephropathy. If patients with IgA Nephropathy have much intake of salt, high blood pressure gets worse. Besides, much intake of salt can aggravate swelling. Consequently, patients with IgA Nephropathy should have a low salt diet.

2. Limit intake of water.

As there is something wrong with kidney function for patients with IgA Nephropathy, water or fluids can build up in body. So if there is obvious swelling in patients with IgA Nephropathy, they should limit intake of water.

3. A low protein diet.

For patients with IgA Nephropathy, kidney function declines. Protein is decomposed into urea nitrogen which is a waste. Thus, eating more protein will increase wastes in kidney, aggravating IgA Nephropathy. But they can eat more high quality protein in daily life. High quality protein can supply amino acid and produce few wastes.

4. A low potassium diet.

As kidney function decreases, balance of electrolyte is broken. So potassium level elevated in body. They should have a low potassium diet in daily life. Much potassium can worsen kidney function.

5. A low phosphorus diet.

If patients with IgA Nephropathy have high phosphorus level, they need to have a low phosphorus diet. However, if not, they don’t have to limit intake of phosphorus.

6. More nutrients.
