Is Drinking Green Tea and Coffee OK for IgA Nephropathy Patients

Is Drinking Green Tea and Coffee OK for IgA Nephropathy PatientsSome people drinking green tea or coffee is OK for IgA Nephropathy patients, while some others say it isn’t. In fact, moderate consumption of green tea and coffee isn’t bad. However, excessive amount may induce some health problems easily.

Coffee for IgA Nephropathy patients

One obvious effect of coffee for IgA Nephropathy patients is its diuretic effect that can help increase urine output and take away more fluid and waste products. Besides, as one natural excitant, drinking one cup of coffee can make patients feel more energetic and have more energy to study or work. From this point, coffee indeed can do something for these patients.

However, drinking coffee in excessive amount or for long term will cause some side effects that are associated with its caffeine. Firstly, drinking one cup of coffee can make IgA Nephropathy patients difficult to fall into sleep. Secondly, it is reported that coffee will lead to the loss of calcium, resulting in osteoporosis. Lastly, coffee has an adverse reaction on blood pressure and cardiovascular health.

Green tea for IgA Nephropathy patients

Different from coffee, green tea, as one natural drink, also contains a variety of nutrients such as tea polyphenols, catechins, chlorophyll, caffeine, amino acids and vitamins. Just because of these substances, this drink is good for IgA Nephropathy patients who have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood fat.

However, green tea contains caffeine and tannic acid, while caffeine in green tea has the side effects same to coffee and tannic acid can affect the absorption of iron that can cause renal anemia easily. From this point, these kidney patients should also control their consumption of green tea.
