Should I Follow A Particular Diet with IgA Nephropathy
I have just been diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy and am being put on blood pressure medications and wondered if I should follow a particular diet. Please can you help me?

Answer: Generally all renal patients including IgA Nephropathy patients need to adjust diet. But there is not a particular diet that is suitable for all patients. Here we can only give you some general suggestions.

-To restrict salt intake. It is helpful for you to control blood pressure and reduce swelling.

-To control protein intake. It is better for you to follow a low protein diet about 20-30g per day. Because the byproducts of protein such as creatinine, urea and uric acids are passed out of body by kidneys. If you consume too much protein, it can put extra stress on kidneys, which is not good for your recovery. Once your renal function gets improved, you can increase protein intake gradually.

-To pay attention to water intake, especially when kidney function is impaired, and severe swelling presents. When you feel thirsty, you can drink some water cooked from coil silk and wax gourd, which can help eliminate edema.

-To eat more fresh vegetables and fruits high in vitamin C, such as kiwi fruit, lemon, and tomatoes. They are helpful for your recovery.

-To take fish oil. It is very common for IgA Nephropathy patients to take such a supplement, which can help suppress inflammation in body including kidneys.

-If you have anemia, you can choose some foods high in iron, such as date, black fungus, lean meat, etc.

In addition, simply blood pressure medications are not good enough for you to control IgA Nephropathy well. You should start a treatment to help correct immune system, repair kidney damage and promote renal function. Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment. It can clear waste products including IgA immune complexes and extra fluid from body, dissolve stasis and improve blood flow so as to make internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. After about one week’s treatment, you will see cotton-like substances in urine. After about half month’s treatment, your high blood pressure will decrease and be stabilized. After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and renal function will be promoted gradually.

You should follow a particular diet with Iga Nephropathy if you do not want it to progress quickly. Now you can send a copy of your lab report to renal-disease@hotmail.com. We can help you analyze it, and then give you personalized guidance on diet and treatment.
