If I Have to Limit Protein Consumption with IgA Nephropathy

If I Have to Limit Protein Consumption with IgA NephropathyYesterday, one patient consulted our online doctor that he has mild IgA Nephropathy looking to see if he has to limit his protein consumption. “My creatinine is 1.4 and I only have light albuminuria and microscopic hematuria” he added. To this question, doctors from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital give out the following answer.

IgA Nephropathy is one common chronic glomerular disease, and about 30% to 40% of patients progress into kidney failure finally. Similar to other types of chronic kidney disease, IgA Nephropathy usually doesn’t cause any symptom in the early stage that is called mild IgA Nephropathy. In this case, a scientific diet plan can slow down the aggravation of IgA Nephropathy. Protein is one nutrition that IgAN patients should pay highly attention to.

To be honest, three factors affect the amount and quality of protein consumption: proteinuria, kidney function level and BUN level. Since nephrotic-range proteinuria is uncommon, IgA Nephropathy patients are recommended to limit their protein intake as the following reference.

0.8 g/kg body weight of protein intake one day for patients with above 60% kidney function;

0.6 g/kg of protein intake one day for patients with 15% to 59% kidney function;

0.4 g/kg of protein intake one day for patients with less than 15% kidney function;

1.2 g/kg of protein intake one day for patients on dialysis.

Now, we can know limitation of protein consumption is quite necessary to control IgA Nephropathy patients’ illness condition. If not, patients are more likely to suffer from further kidney damage, the quick progress of IgA Nephropathy, worse proteinuria and higher BUN level.

Aside from the amount of protein intake, the quality is also very important. For kidney patients, they should choose high-quality protein as their supplement. If you want to get a food list rich in such type of protein, you can consult our doctor directly, so you can get the answer quickly.
