When seeing GFR keeps declining, you may become anxious. How to prevent GFR from decreasing? Is changing lifestyle helpful? What lifestyle change helps with GFR for IgA Nephropathy patients? With these questions, let’s have a read the following article.
You should follow a renal-friendly diet.
Declined GFR can not filter excess waste products out of the body. If you do not pay attention to your diet, massive waste products may be produced to put extra stress on your kidneys. In such a case, it is likely for your kidneys to be damaged further. However, there is not a diet that is suitable for all IgA Nephropathy patients. In general, you should follow a low but high quality protein diet, low salt diet and high vitamin diet.
You should stop strenuous exercises.
Strenuous exercises may make you very tired so as to impair your immune system, which increase your risk of infections and triggering the relapse of your disease. But you can do some gentle exercises in the daily to boost your immune system, such as walking, jogging, yoga, tai chi, etc.
You should give up bad living habit.
Bad living habit is not good for your disease as well, so you should give up. For example, smoking, drinking, being crapulent, staying up, etc.
In addition, you should combine healthy lifestyle with treatment.

You should seek medical treatment aggressively to control symptoms. Besides, you should take treatment to repair kidney damage and improve kidney function. Only in this way can you live a high quality life.
