How to Select Protein Food for IgA NephropathySpeaking of how to select protein foods for IgA Nephropathy patients,here are 4 principles you should follow.

Principle 1—Lower protein intake

A restricted protein diet is helpful for relieving the symptoms and protecting the remaining kidney function, especially for those with an elevated level of nitrogen. The protein diet plan should be made and adjusted based on the GFR (glomerular filtration rate). What I want to remind you is that if you are in the period of renal failure or get Uremia, more protein should be taken. However, patients’condition differs from person to person. As for your individual intake of protein, you can ask our online doctor’s suggestion.

Principle 2—Limit plant protein

Firstly, plant protein is of low quality because it lacks EAA (essential amino acid). Excessive this kind of protein intake will produce more waste and toxins, which will burden the damaged kidneys. Secondly, it produces nitrogen, which may lead to Azotemia, thus IgA Nephropathy patients’ illness condition becomes worse. Soy bean and bean products are not recommended. Here I strongly suggest wheat starch instead of rice and flour as the staple food. Wheat starch is a product from wheat flour produced by removing the proteins including gluten.

Principle 3—Supplement high-quality protein

Compared with plant protein, IgA Nephropathy patients are suggested to take animal protein, such as lean meat, fish, chicken. Animal protein is of high-quality. It can be easily digested with various non-essential amino acids and has the least possibility of the onset of gout.

Lean meat, egg white and milk are good choices. The specific intake is figured out based on the patients weight.

Principle 4—No more protein other than three daily meals

The total quantity of high-quality protein refers to the protein contained in the foods of all meals. No more supplement is needed. For example, if you can take enough high-quality protein in lean meat, eggs or milk is not needed any more.

No matter which period the IgA Nephropathy develops, patients should take a certain protein and different conditions have different standards. Any questions, please leave a message below, our experts will reply you within 48 hours.
