IgA Nephropathy Stage 5 Diet

IgA Nephropathy Stage 5 DietIgA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease) is a kind of glomerulonephritis, which often occurs among children and adolescents. Generally speaking, IgA Nephropathy develops slowly, thus it is classified into CKD. According to glomerular filtration rate (GFR), CKD is classified into five stages. Medical treatment plays an important role in controlling IgA Nephropathy, so does the diet, because diet provides your body with rich nutrients so as to make your body stronger and then you can fight against IgA Nephropathy powerfully. Now let’s have a look at IgA Nephropathy stage 5 diet.

For patients with IgA Nephropathy stage 5, they should especially pay attention to their diet, because their kidneys can not remove the metabolic waste produced by the consumed food. Improper diet may speed up kidney failure and impair kidney function further.

Moderate protein intake

If you have not received dialysis yet, you should restrict protein intake into 0.4 g/kg per day. Too much protein intake will increase toxin concentration in the blood, leading to uremia so as to threaten your life. But if you are on dialysis, you should increase protein intake to 1.2 g/kg per day to supplement the lost protein. And when you eat protein, high quality protein like egg white, lean meat and fish are preferred.

Limit water intake

Swelling is a very common symptom of IgA Nephropathy stage 5 patients, which results from water retention. In such case, if you still drink a lot of water, your swelling will become worse and worse.

Supplement vitamins

Kidney damage will make your body lack of vitamins easily. Dialysis will worsen this condition. In such case, you should supplement moderate vitamins to satisfy the need of body. Fresh vegetables and fruits are good source of vitamins.

Limit restrict potassium and phosphorus

The damaged kidneys are not able to expel potassium and phosphorus from the blood. Both high potassium level and high phosphorus level is life-threatening for stage 5 kidney patients.

There is not a diet plan that is suitable for all IgA Nephropathy stage 5 patients. If you would like a personalized one, please send your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com. After analyzing your case, we will reply you.
