Is Pizza OK for IgA Nephropathy

Is Pizza OK for IgA Nephropathy

“Do you love Pizza?” “Yes, certainly!” “Do you love IgA Nephropathy?” “What? Are you kidding? I’m suffering from that.” If you are also a IgA Nephropathy patient, you should pay more attention to Pizza, because it will “kill” you. I do not scare you!

Surveys show that the sodium level is rather high in Pizza, and “ salt” is a dangerous enemy for IgA Nephropathy.

Firstly, more intake of salt will cause hypotension or swelling for IgA Nephropathy patients. The tortilla, sauces and cheese are put much salt when processed. A normal-sized piece of Pizza may contain 600mg salt. If IgA Nephropathy patients take much salt, he or she may feel thirsty frequently and drink more water. That leads to sodium retention, causing hypotension and swelling. The new edition Dietary Guidelines for Americans says that the intake of salt should be limited to 1500mg for those who are over 51 or have a chronic disease. Therefore, if you get IgA Nephropathy, you’d better eat less Pizza from now on.

Secondly, much salt intake causes calcium loss. Your kidneys discharge extra sodium everyday. For every 1000mg of sodium excretion, it takes about 26mg of calcium. Calcium loss will make you feel weak.

Thirdly, people eating much salt are easy to have a cold. As we all know, IgA Nephropathy is always caused by infections, especially URI ( upper respiratory infection ). High concentration salt can inhibit the activity of respiratory tract cells, reducing disease resistance. Meantime, it also inhibit the secretion of lysozyme in saliva, increasing the chances of URI infection by bacteria and virus. That will worsen your illness condition.

An American healthy official once announced: 90% of American taking too much salt, mainly due to eating too much cheese hamburg, bread, chips and Pizza. Unfortunately, your favorite Pizza is on the list. However, if you want to get rid of the suffering IgA Nephropathy brings, you’d better make a good diet plan without Pizza. Best wishes!
