IgA Nephropathy patients often follow a restricted diet to have a good control of their disease, for example, they have to limit the intake of protein when they have proteinuria. But when you start dialysis, you have to change your diet. Because during dialysis, a lot of protein and nutrients are taken away with the waste products, you have to supplement enough protein and other nutrients to maintain your life. If not, it is likely for you to suffer from weakness.
