Recommended Diet for IgA NephropathyWhat diet is recommended for IgA Nephropathy patients? We have to pay extra attention on our daily diet if we are unfortunately diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy which is also called Berger’s Disease in medicine, because what we eat may cause great influence on our illness condition. Well then, what we should eat with IgA Nephropathy?

Actually, what can IgA Nephropathy patients eat neither depend on their doctors, nor themselves. They need to regulate their diet habits according their specific illness condition:

1. In general, IgA Nephropathy patients need to reduce protein intake if they have not started dialysis. IgA Nephropathy is the most common glomerular disease which can cause excessive protein in urine. Under such a condition, a low-protein diet will be recommended to slow down the rate of progression of illness. However, if they are on dialysis, much more protein will be needed. Protein is the basic of life, so IgA Nephropathy patients can eat some high quality proteins like lean meat and egg white to supply the body with nutrients.

2. A low-salt diet is especially recommended for IgA patients suffering from high blood pressure and swelling. To achieve this purpose, they need to stay far away from pickled foods like pickles, salted eggs, bacon, processed foods and variety sauces. Additional, try to add less salt while cooking.

3. A low-antigen diet is also necessary for IgA Nephropathy patients, as it is said low-antigen diet can help to decrease mucosal antigen exposure. A low-antigen diet consists of restricting dietary gluten and avoiding meats and daily products.

4. Calculate the fluid intake, including soup, if there is serious swelling.

In reality, many patients do not believe diet plays an important in the treatment of IgA Nephropathy. They eat what they like and be crapulent always. Also, they drink alcohol without limitation. All these bad living habits increase kidneys’ burden and make them weaker, so further kidney damages are caused easily. Protecting residual kidney function helps to reduce the risk for serious complications like heart failure, so following on the recommended diet and knowing what to eat is very beneficial for IgA Nephropathy patients.
