What Changes I Can Make to My Diet with IgA Nephropathy

Question: Hello, I would like to know what changes I can make to my diet to reduce high creatinine levels. I have IgA Nephropathy.

What Changes I Can Make to My Diet with IgA NephropathyAnswer: When kidney fails to work, it can not remove the waste products from the blood. In such case, you should make some changes in diet in case that improper diet intake produces a lot of waste products so as to put extra stress on kidneys. You said your creatinine level is high. Creatinine level usually does not increase until more than 50% kidney function has been lost. Therefore, now your kidneys have been severely damaged. It is really necessary for you to change the diet to protect your remaining kidney function if you do not want dialysis and kidney transplant.

-Reduce meat intake

When creatinine can not be discharged out of the body timely, you should know how to reduce the production of creatinine. Meat is a source of creatinine, so you had better restrict meat intake.

-Limit sodium intake

Too much sodium can increase blood pressure and cause water retention so as to worsen your kidney function. If you want to protect your kidneys, you should limit sodium intake, but it does not mean you should avoid sodium intake.

-Fresh vegetables and fruits

Fresh vegetables and fruits won’t increase creatinine level. Because they are packed with rich antioxidants, antioxidants can neutralize the free radicals in the blood and strengthen immune system to help you fight against the disease.

What changes I can make to my diet with IgA Nephropathy? Because the information you give me is too limited, it is difficult for me to make a detailed diet plan. If you have urine test or blood test or some other medical test report, please send them to igacure@gmail.com. After analyzing your case, I can give you some suggestions on diet and treatment.
