But with kidney disease, importance should be attached to salt intake, because improper salt intake can cause further damage to the kidneys. How much salt is recommended daily for IgA Nephropathy patients? After reading this article, you will find the answer.

Why IgA Nephropathy patients should limit the intake of salt?

When you have too much salt, you may drink a lot of water to quench thirst. This can result in fluid retention, inducing renal edema. Besides, excessive salt intake can raise blood pressure. High blood pressure can not only cause further damage to your kidneys, but also impair your heart to threaten your life. Therefore, you should limit the intake of salt.

Should all IgA Nephropathy limit the intake of salt?

Not all IgA Nephropathy patients should limit salt intake. When your condition is controlled well, for example, your urine output is normal, your edema has disappeared and your high blood pressure is within the normal range, it is unnecessary for you to restrict salt intake. And salt intake restriction does not mean you should avoid salt intake, because salt deficiency can also cause fatigue, headache, dizziness and some other body malaise.

How much salt is recommended daily for IgA Nephropathy patients?

It depends on your medical condition. If your IgA Nephropathy is stabilized, 5-6 g salt intake per day is recommended. If you have edema and high blood pressure, you should limit salt intake into 2-3 g per day. If your edema is very severe and your urine output decreases, you may have to avoid salt intake.

Besides salt intake, you should pay attention to protein intake, fat intake, vitamins intake, etc. And to find a comprehensive treatment plan for IgA Nephropathy is also necessary. For more information about our treatment, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
