What Food Should Be Avoided By IgA Nephropathy PatientsWhat should patients with IgA Nephropathy pay attention to about their diet? It is a question many patients care about. And now we will introduce what patients with IgA Nephropathy should pay attention to about their diet.

1. Avoid high potassium fruits and vegetables

One of the crucial functions of the kidneys is to maintain homeostasis, which means that the body is able to adjust its internal environment in order to sustain life. Thus, the kidneys can sustain blood pressure, hemoglobin and blood vessels of various minerals within healthy range. With the progression of IgA Nephropathy, kidneys fail to filter excess potassium in the body. In this condition, patients with IgA Nephropathy should avoid potassium-rich fruits like bananas, strawberries, plums, kiwi, grapes, apricots, tomatoes, nuts, cantaloupe, figs and raspberries and so on. Besides, high potassium vegetables like broccoli, swiss chard, mustard green, turnip greens, collard greens, kale, romaine and spinach, etc.

2. Limit salt and water intake

Kidney disease patients with serious edema, high blood pressure and little urine, should have diet without salt. In addition, they should also not eat food rich in sodium such as pickles, canned meat, salted eggs, preserved bean curd and tuber mustard.

3. Avoid food rich in protein

If much protein is consumed, it will produce more nitrogen waste after metabolizing, which is able to put a strain on kidneys. If urine volume is too little to discharge the wastes, they will build up in the body, causing a series of poisoning symptoms. Thus, patients with IgA Nephropathy should not eat food rich in protein, like meat, egg and bean product.

The above are some fruits and foods patients should avoid. On the contrary, they should eat more food rich in vitamin and eat more food which has light flavor and diuresis function.
