Question: I was googling about IgA Nephropathy. I used to enjoy heavy duty weight training and cycling before I got this problem and heard that heavy duty physical training is bad for this disease. I’m wondering if it’s true and would like to know what kind of work out and how much intensity is safe for me as a patient. my creatinine level is 1.3~1.4 mg/dL with albuminuria and hematuria which I can’t remember the measured values right now.
Answer: Heavy duty physical training can make you feel very tired, which is not conductive to your recovery. Besides, it can trigger the relapse of disease and even make your condition worse. Therefore, you had better take some gentle training.
About the intensity of exercises for IgA Nephropathy
How hard should you work while exercising? This is the most difficult to talk about without knowing your own exercise capacity. Usually, the following ideas are helpful:
* Your breathing should not be so hard that you cannot talk with someone exercising with you. Try to get an exercise partner such as a family member or a friend.
* You should feel completely normal within one hour after exercising. If not, slow down next time.
* You should not feel so much muscle soreness that it keeps you from exercising the next session.
The intensity should be a "comfortable push" level. Start out slowly each session to warm up, then pick up your pace, then slow down again when you are about to finish. The most important thing is to start slowly and progress gradually, allowing your body to adapt to the increased levels of activity.
From what you said, we can see that your creatinine is at the border. If you do not want your disease to develop quickly, you need to control albuminuria. What treatment are you taking now? If your current treatment is not effective enough, you can try Toxin-Removing Treatment, a new treatment for IgA Nephropathy.
-After about one week’s treatment, hematuria will get great relief. And you will see a lot of floccules, which are those wastes being passed out.
-After about half month’s treatment, your albuminuria will be reduced. And your creatinine level will be normalized.
-After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
With IgA Nephropathy, you had better not do heavy duty physical training. If you still have any other questions, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
