Question: I have been diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy. I want to know what kind of foods should the patient that take ketosteril eat.
Answer: IgA Nephropathy (also known as Berger’s Disease) is the most common glomerulonephritis worldwide. You said you are taking ketosteril. Do you know what function does this kind of medicine have?
It is usually used for prevention and treatment of protein metabolism disorders due to chronic renal insufficiency, and used in patients with glomerular filtration rate lower than 25 ml per minute. What is your GFR now? This medicine can help correct azotemia, and decrease urea and creatinine level, which is helpful for you to protect your kidneys.
It requires renal patients to follow a low protein diet.
This medicine is actually a compound of many essential amino acids, which can satisfy the need of body. In such a case, there is no need for you to consume too much protein in case that it causes extra stress on kidneys. For an adult, 40 grams or less of protein per day is recommended. And when choosing protein, high quality protein such as egg white, lean meat and milk are preferred.
Besides low protein diet, you had better limit salt intake, which is helpful for you to control high blood pressure. And meanwhile increase your intake of vitamins. Fresh vegetables and fruits will be a good choice.
Ketosteril is helpful, but it can not repair kidney damage and improve renal function.
Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment, which is a systemic treatment.
-After about one week’s treatment, IgA immune complexes and other wastes will be passed out of body.
-After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria, high blood pressure, hematuria, anemia and so on will get relieved greatly.
-After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
As treatment goes on, your abnormal immune system will be corrected, and renal inflammation will be controlled very well so that the disease won’t relapse easily.
What foods should IgA Nephropathy patients that take ketosteril eat? Generally a low protein diet is recommended. Besides, you had better follow a systemic treatment to repair kidney damage and promote renal function. For more information on IgA Nephropathy, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
