Dietary Guidelines to Help Slow the Progression of Berger's Disease

Dietary Guidelines to Help Slow the Progression of Berger's DiseaseBerger's disease is also known as IgA Nephropathy. With IgA Nephropathy, patients have to follow a renal-friendly diet to slow the progression to kidney failure. In this article, we list some dietary guidelines to help slow the progression of Berger's Disease.

High quality protein

All people need protein to build body. For IgA Nephropathy patients, they should pay attention to the intake of protein as well. But protein metabolism can produce a lot of urea and some other waste like creatinine. Kidneys are responsible for removing the waste from the blood. Too much protein intake may increase the workload of kidneys so as to speed up the progression to kidney failure. High quality protein contains all the essential amino acids the body needs, so it is preferred to the plant protein. The amount of protein intake depends on your remaining kidney function.


People with Berger’s Disease often have a poor immune system, which expose them to various disease, such as cold and infection. And cold and infection can cause the frequent relapse of IgA Nephropathy. Vitamins especially vitamin C can boost immune system so as to protect you from disease. Besides, vitamin C can also help your body absorb iron so as to ease anemia, a common complication of kidney disease. Fresh vegetables and fruits are all good source of vitamins.

Other diet guidelines

In order to reduce protein metabolism, you should ensure carbohydrate intake. And if you have high blood pressure or edema, you should restrict salt intake. According to your blood test, you may also adjust the intake of potassium, phosphorus, calcium, iron, etc. If it is excess, you had better avoid. If it is less, you should supplement it.

Dietary therapy should go with medical therapy together. There are many particular therapies in our hospital, such Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, medicates bath, circle therapy, enema therapy, etc. If you are interested in them, please feel free to contact online doctor.
