To limit protein intake is helpful for you to improve your kidney condition.

With IgA Nephropathy, it is likely for you to have proteinuria. Proteinuria means your kidneys become leaky. If you eat too much protein, more protein will go out of kidneys so as to make your kidney condition worse. Besides, massive protein intake can increase the production of metabolic wastes, which can put extra stress on kidneys. Moreover, when large amounts of protein goes out of kidneys, it can speed up glomerulosclerosis.

Amount of protein intake for IgA Nephropathy patients

In different stages of IgA Nephropathy, the amount of protein intake is different. For example, when your renal function is still normal, your protein intake should be 1g/kg plus the urine protein amount. But in stage 3, protein intake should be controlled into 0.8-1g/kg per day.

When choosing protein, high quality protein is preferred, such as egg white and poultry meat without skin. Generally speaking, one egg contains 6g protein, 200 ml of milk contains about 6g protein, and 50g lean meat contains about 8g protein.

Protein restriction is not enough for you to control IgA Nephropathy well.
