Wrong Diet for IgA Nephropathy
The symptoms of IgA Nephropathy are similar with that of other kidney diseases, which include proteinnuris, hematuria, high blood pressure and edema. However, IgA Nephropathy can develop to Renal Failure if the disease can not be well treated. There is a long way for the patients with IgA Nephropathy to go, and they should prepare to fight a long-drawn war. During long-term treatment, diet plays an important role. In traditional Chinese medicine, food can not only provide nutrition but also take effect on treating disease and food therapy is prevalent throughout greater China, but wrong choice of food can not benefit your health, but do harm to your body. Let me introduce some wrong diet for patients with IgA Nephropathy.
Ⅰ low salt diet = no salt diet

In traditional Chinese medicine, there is a statement ‘salt comes into kidney’. to control the intake of salt is crucial important for patients with IgA Nephropathy especially for the patients who already have edema. On this condition, some patients are ‘afraid’ of salt so that they start to take no salt diet. In fact, no salt diet can lead to low serum sodium, low serum chloride, low blood pressure and muscle spasm.
Ⅱ vegetarian diet = low protein diet

Patients with IgA Nephropathy have low metabolic capacity of the kidney, and they need high quality protein. However, some patients misunderstand principle and consider vegetarian diet as low protein diet. Actually, protein includes two types: vegetable protein and animal protein. Since vegetable protein contains more limited essential amino acid and more potassium, it is not suitable for patients with IgA Nephropathy. However, animal protein contains more than 50% essential amino acid, so to choose animal protein is right.
Ⅲ bone broth = rich nutrition
Patients with IgA Nephropathy usually have metabolism disorder of calcium and phosphorus. Nausea, vomiting and poor appetite cause inadequate intake of calcium, what’s worse, damaged gastrointestinal function and hyperparathyroidism cause the calcium absorption from intestinal tract to decline. That is the reason why many patients with IgA Nephropathy consider bone broth as their secret recipe. However, they ignore that the damaged renal function can not excrete phosphorus and bone broth contains much phosphorus, which can aggravates hyperphosphatemia .Click here!
