Is It Okay to Eat Mashed Potato with IgA Nephropathy

Is It Okay to Eat Mashed Potato with IgA NephropathyPotatoes are one common food all over the world, and it has a wealth of health benefits. Can patients with IgA Nephropathy get benefits from mashed potatoes?

Of course, they can. Correct amount of potato intake will bring several benefits for these patients.

Anti-inflammation: IgA Nephropathy is caused by inflammatory reactions within kidneys, while potatoes are able to help reduce inflammation, both internal and external. In this case, right consumption of potato can help slow down the progression of IgA Nephropathy to some extent.

Digestion booster: Because potatoes predominantly contain carbohydrate, they are good dietary source for people with digestive problems. If patients have poor appetite, they may suffer from weakness and malnutrition. In this case, potato is one good choice to prompt patients' appetite and provide energy for its easy digestion.

Lowering high blood pressure: When kidneys are damaged by IgA Nephropathy, extra fluid and sodium may accumulate in the blood vessels, resulting in high blood pressure. Potassium in potatoes are natural vasodilator that can help fight the effect of sodium on blood pressure and reduce high blood pressure.

Diarrhea alleviator: For IgA Nephropathy patients who have diarrhea, potatoes are a great excellent energy-rich food. It can help ease patients' diarrhea and provide enough nutrition for these patients.

Although potatoes can bring so many health benefits for patients with IgA Nephropathy, it may cause some side effects if eating too much.

Just because of rich potassium and phosphorus in the potatoes, these patients can't eat this food freely. When patients' potassium and phosphorus levels in the blood are higher than the normal, they should control their intake of potatoes tightly. Besides, if IgA Nephropathy patients take steroids to inhibit their kidney disease, they may be at high risk of high blood sugar and diabetes. In this condition, they should pay attention to potato consumption.
