What Type of Food Can Be Taken with IgA NephropathyIgA Nephropathy is a kidney disorder caused by IgA lodging in kidneys, which result in local inflammation. Recently, there is no cure for IgA Nephropathy. Therefore, we have to live with it for long term. Though what we eat and drink can not cure this disease as well, it plays an important role in slowing down the progression. What type of food can be taken with IgA Nephropathy?

High quality protein

Protein is necessary for body-building. But it is broken down into many wastes and increase the burden on kidneys. So we had better choose some high quality protein which produce less wastes, such as egg white, lean meat, milk, etc.

Fresh vegetables and fruits

Fresh vegetables and fruits are rich in vitamins. Vitamins can boost your immune system, which can protect you from various diseases. Vegetables include onions, green pepper, broccoli, etc. Fruits include kiwi-fruit, pomegranate, cranberry, etc.

Fresh vegetables and fruits are also good source of fiber. It helps to lower cholesterol levels, which conduces to preventing heart disease, a complication of kidney disease.

Low sodium food

Too much intake of sodium will worsen edema and high blood pressure, so it is better for you to limit the sodium intake.

Potassium food

If your kidneys still work properly, eating proper potassium can help lower blood pressure. If your kidneys can not filter wastes and toxins from the blood, you had better avoid potassium food, such as bananas, potatoes, pumpkin, etc.
