The first one is that patients’ glomerular disorder is caused by autoimmune disease such as Lupus and HSP. This is because spirulina could stimulate patients’ immune system, so as to worsen inflammatory reactions within kidneys and aggravate patients’ illness condition.

The second one is that type 2 diabetes is the primary cause. Glomerulonephritis patients who are insulin-dependent or have type 2 diabetes should consult their doctor or doctor online in detail before consuming spirulina.

Besides, this supplement may also increase the risk of gout. From this point, patients who are suffering or at the risk of these two problems had better stay away from spirulina.

In summary

Therefore, to be responsible for these patients’ health and safety, they are recommended to consult the Doctor online firstly before consuming this food or supplement.
