Healthy eating plays an important role in all of our life, especially when we get ill. Proper diet can help control the disease, while improper diet can make the illness condition worse. In this article, some nutrition tips will be given for managing IgA Nephritis.
Patients of different ages and sizes need different amounts. Too much intake may increase proteinuria and speed up glomerulosclerosis so as to impair renal function, while too little intake can not satisfy the need of your body function.
High cholesterol level in the bloodstream is common in kidney patients, which can increase your risk of stroke and heart disease. Though it can be controlled with medications, you should pay attention to the fat intake.
When protein and fat intake are restricted both, you should increase carbohydrates, which can help provide the essential energy for body function. Whole grain cereals, high fiber breakfast cereals from unrefined carbohydrates are best.
When kidneys are healthy, they can balance the mineral level, such as sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphate, etc. As the disease progresses, those minerals build up in body, so you have to modify the diet and take special supplements to manage those mineral levels.
If you have swelling, it means water can not be filtered out of body adequately. In such a case, fluid intake should be controlled. How much you can take depends on your urine output.
In addition, you should combine proper diet with correct treatment to achieve a good effect. Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment, a systemic Chinese medicine treatment.
