Our body needs various nutrition to maintain its normal function, so a good nutrition therapy should include balanced nutrition.

Low quantity of high quality protein

Protein is an important part of our body, so we can not live without protein. But protein metabolism produces a lot of waste products, such as creatinine and urea. And then your kidneys have to work hard to remove them out of the body, which is not good for you to preserve kidney function. Therefore, it is better for you to follow a low protein diet. Because high quality protein such as egg white and lean meat produces less waste products than other protein, so it is preferred.

Low salt diet

Sodium in salt can retain water in body and raise blood pressure. If you have swelling or high blood pressure, you had better limit the intake of salt and food high in salt, such as pickles and other processed food.

Moderate carbohydrate intake

Because of limited protein intake, your body have to acquire energy from carbohydrate and fat. How much energy you should consume depends on your labor intensity. As to fat, you had better limit its intake, because it may increase your blood cholesterol level so as to raise your risk of heart disease.

Fresh vegetables and fruits

Fresh vegetables and fruits are great source of trace elements, vitamins, fiber and so on, which are all good for IgA Nephropathy. But if you have high blood potassium or phosphorus level, you should restrict the intake of certain vegetables and fruits.
