What Kind of Protein Is the Best for IgA Nephropathy

What Kind of Protein Is the Best for IgA Nephropathy For IgA Nephropathy patients, they have strict restriction on protein, because improper protein intake worsens proteinuria and speeds up kidney failure. But it does not mean IgA Nephropathy patients should avoid protein intake, because our bodies need protein to maintain life. What kind of protein is best for IgA Nephropathy? To know the answer helps you live a normal life with IgA Nephropathy.

Generally speaking, high quality protein is the best for IgA Nephropathy.

It is hard to tell you the life expectation with GFR 15, but it depends on many factors, such as age, current physical condition, symptoms, treatment, etc. For example, the life expectation of old men with GFR 15 is worse than middle-aged men. The life expectation of people with GFR 15 and high blood pressure is worse than people without high blood pressure. We can not change our age, but the other conditions can be improved through treatment.

Our body needs amino acids to make antibodies, muscles, enzymes, etc. Some of the amino acids can be made by our own body, while some have to be absorbed from the protein we consume. When our kidneys are healthy, it is unnecessary for us to worry about protein intake, because even if we eat nonessential amino acids, our kidneys can remove their metabolic waste products such as urea from the blood. But IgA Nephropathy weakens your kidneys’ ability to remove waste. If you still eat such protein, it will increase the workload of kidneys, cause azotemia and speed up kidney failure.

Therefore, we should eat protein that is packed with more essential amino acids. This kind of protein is high quality protein, such as lean meat, egg white, milk, fish and so on.

How much protein you should take with IgA Nephropathy?

Though high quality protein is good for you, you should limit the intake of protein, because excessive intake can also increase the workload of kidneys. How much protein you should take depends on your conditions. For example, if you do not have kidney function impairment and there is massive protein in urine, 1-1.5 g/kg protein intake per day can satisfy the need of body. With the decrease of kidney function, you should gradually lower protein intake. If you want to know how much protein you can eat, our online doctor can help you.
