Iga Nephropathy: Can Dialysis Patients Eat Dried Dates

Iga Nephropathy: Can Dialysis Patients Eat Dried DatesIgA Nephropathy (or Berger's Disease) is one of the most common form of glomerulonephritis that damaged the kidneys' tiny filtering units, called glomeruli. The damaged caused by this disease results from abnormal deposits of a protein (IgA) in the glomeruli. 20-40% of the patients develop ESRD about 20 years after the disease becomes apparent. By then, dialysis is required. Can dialysis patients eat dried dates?
