Diet Choices and 5 Stages of IgA Nephropathy

IgA Nephropathy is ranked into 5 different stages, according to WHO. And in each stage, the diet choices should be diverse.

Delicate fresh vegetables and fruits are also necessary, such as cucumber, tomato, wax gourd, watermelon, red bayberry etc. Meantime, patients should take proper water and keep low-sodium diet. Salty food should be limited.
