Is Virgin Coconut Oil Safe for IgA Nephropathy Patients

Is Virgin Coconut Oil Safe for IgA Nephropathy PatientsIgA Nephropathy is caused by inflammation within kidneys, so patients are recommended to develop a kidney-friendly diet plan. Virgin coconut oil contains rich nutritions, but this doesn’t mean virgin coconut oil is safe for IgA Nephropathy patients.

For general population, virgin coconut oil can bring many benefits including skin care, stress relief, cholesterol level maintenance, hair care, weight loss and boosted immune ability. IgA Nephropathy patients can also get these benefits from consuming virgin coconut oil, but there is another important nutrition that they should pay highly attention to. That is the high content of saturated fats.

Although virgin coconut oil is cholesterol-free, it is still rich in saturated fat that needs to be limited in the kidney-friendly diet. This is because this type of fat may worsen the inflammatory reactions within kidneys for IgA Nephropathy patients.

From the above analysis, we can know virgin coconut oil is surely better than animal oil and butter but not as good as liquid vegetable oils such as olive oil and flaxseed oil. Why are these types of oil are better for IgA Nephropathy patients?

The reason is that liquid vegetable oils are usually rich in unsaturated fatty acid, especially omega-3 fatty acid. It can help inhibit inflammatory reactions within kidneys and slow down the progress of IgA Nephropathy. From this point, we can know how important it is to choose correct foods and oil to consume.

Since virgin coconut oil isn’t the best oil choice for IgA Nephropathy patients, you should pay highly attention to its intake with kidney disease. Of course, only a small amount of this oil is OK to consume.

If you still have any question about IgA Nephropathy diet, you can consult the doctor online or leave a message below.
