First, get an overview of IgA Nephropathy.

IgA Nephropathy, or IgA Nephritis, is one glomerulonephritis that is characterized by hematuria, proteinuria, upper respiratory infections, high blood pressure, back pain and some other symptoms. In some cases, people with this nephritis can get complete remission, while most often, IgA Nephropathy may worsen to kidney failure. Cactus is more than one simple vegetable that indeed can do something for managing IgA Nephropathy or at least its symptoms.

Second, know how does cactus help treat IgA Nephropathy.

Cactus is known as its high content of vitamin B2, fiber, essential amino acid, potassium and some other nutritions. Also, it is low in sodium and sugar. All of these characteristics determine some IgA Nephropathy patients can consume cactus and get benefits, while some others should limit their intake.

- A good protein supplement: For people with kidney disease, low-quality protein will produce extra waste products to increase the burden on kidneys. Cactus is one great source of high-quality protein, because it contains eight essential amino acids.

- Reduce high blood pressure and high cholesterol: It is reported that the reason cactus has this effect is that it contains vitamin B2 and some other vitamins.
