What Kind of Diet I should Be on for IgA Nephropathy

What Kind of Diet I should Be on for IgA NephropathyWhat kind of diet I should be on for IgA Nephropathy? Many patients have asked about this question, so today we will give a detailed introduction about it.

To protect residual kidney function, IgA Nephropathy should put the following several points into their mind:

1. Try to be vegetarian

In cases of IgA Nephropathy, kidneys are injured due to severe inflammation in mesangial area. Meat is proven to be high in arachidonic acid and saturated fats which are bad fatty acid. For IgA Nephropathy patients, high intake of these bad fatty acid will increase the inflammatory response and further damage kidney. Therefore, trying to be vegetarian is good for IgA Nephropathy patients.

2. Adjust protein intake

Protein is the basic of life, however, for IgA Nephropathy patients who are told to have excess protein in urine, high protein intake will worsen proteinuria and accelerate illness progression. How much protein is needed by IgA Nephropathy patients depends on their specific illness condition. (If you are a IgA Nephropathy patient and want to know how much protein is suggested for you, please leave message to: igacure@gmail.com or leave us message below)

3. Adjust the intake of trace element

Almost all the IgA Nephropathy patients have electrolyte disturbance problem and this condition becomes more seriously when illness develops to renal failure stage. Exact intake of potassium, calcium, phosphorus and sodium depends on patients’ specific illness, so before making diet changes, IgA Nephropathy patients need to have a thorough understanding about their illness.

4. Remember to replenish vitamin

Due to strict diet limitation, IgA Nephropathy patients are lack of vitamin easily, so it is necessary for them to remember to replenish vitamin regularly.

All in all, diet for IgA Nephropathy patients differ from case to case due to the difference of illness condition. Therefore, please remember to make diet changes according to test report.
