Can IgA Nephropathy Patients Eat Mango

Can IgA Nephropathy Patients Eat MangoWith the summer almost here, mango – the ‘king of fruits’ has appeared in the market. Apart from tasting really good, mangoes also help to keep our health. The medical effects of mangoes include: increasing immunity, providing protection against cancer, controlling blood pressure and preventing heart disease.

But IgA nephropathy patients’ protein intake is limited, is mango good for their health?

Many nutrients in mango are good for IgA Nephropathy patients, for example,vitamin B-6 helps to protect the heart from CAD (coronary artery disease). Mango also contains some nutrients limited for IgA nephropathy patients. Fresh mangoes are a good source of potassium, which is harmful for kidney disease patients whose potassium level is higher than the normal. Mango is also a fruit rich in protein. As we know, IgA Nephropathy patients suffer kidney disorders, unable to filter extra water and waste in the body. Waste produced by extra protein metabolism will aggravate the burden of kidney. Thus, patients’ condition will deteriorate.

So patients should be cautious, when eating mango. If you can take in some proteins, you can eat some mango and replenish some other nutrients in the meantime. If you are keeping a strict-protein-diet, you’d better choose some high-quality protein foods than mango. Consult your doctor or dietitian whether you can eat mango or how much you can eat.

Owing to kidney disorder, the kidney can’t preserve some necessary nutrients. The followings are some fruit good for IgA nephropathy patients:


Blueberry contains antioxidant phytonutrients and manganese, which can keep the bones healthy.


IgA nephropathy patients always with high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease. Apples are a good source of fiber and anti-inflammatory compounds.
