How to Reduce Weight with IgA Nephropathy

How to Reduce Weight with IgA Nephropathy“If I’m having IgA Nephropathy, how to reduce weight?” If you also have weight problem, this article may be helpful to solve it.

-To pay attention to steroids or immunosuppressants intake

Steroids and immunosuppressants are the commonly used treatment for IgA Nephropathy. They can suppress renal inflammation and reduce protein leakage so as to halt the progression of the disease. But they have many side effects. For example, they can increase your appetite and make you gain weight. Once your disease is stable, you had better try some natural treatment so as to counteract the side effects. In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we usually use Toxin-Removing Treatment. This treatment can help make proteinuria and hematuria turn negative. It can also eliminate edema and reduce the relapse of disease.

-To reduce water retention

When kidneys are damaged or you have massive protein leakage, you may have edema. Edema means extra fluid builds up in the body, which can make your weight increase as well. Diuretics can help flush out fluid from body, but this is only a temporary medical relief. Only when you get your renal function restored can fluid be eliminated from body naturally. And then water retention will be reduced, and your weight will decrease.

-To do exercises regularly

With kidney disease, you may not be encouraged to do exercises. But it does not mean you can not do exercises at all. It is just to restrain you from some constant sports, such as basketball and football. Once your disease is stable, you can do some gentle exercises, such as walking, jogging, tai chi, yoga, etc.

In addition, you can have a reasonable diet, which does not only provide the essential elements for maintaining normal function, but also protects kidneys from being damaged.
