Can Patients With IgA Nephropathy Eat MushroomAlmost all of us are familiar with mushrooms and their miraculous, beneficial powers. It helps in weight loss, diabetes, lowers high blood pressure and increases the strength of immune system. Can patients with IgA Nephropathy eat mushroom?

Yes, it is good for IgA Nephropathy patients to eat mushroom. They can get the following health benefits by adding mushroom to their diet:

1. Alleviate anemia

Anemia is common to be seen in IgA Nephropathy patients. Anemia can result in fatigue, headache and digestive issues. Mushrooms are a source of iron and more than 90% of the nutritive iron value can be absorbed by the body, which promotes the formation of red blood cells and helps alleviate anemia.

2. Diabetes

Diabetes may raise the risk of kidney failure. Mushrooms are good for controlling diabetes. They have no fats, no cholesterol, very low levels of carbohydrates, high protein content, and a wealth of vitamin and minerals. Moreover, they contain natural insulin and enzymes which help break down the sugar or starch in food. The natural antibiotics in mushrooms also protect diabetics from these painful and potentially life-threatening conditions.

3. Boost immune system

Immune system strength is the key point in the treatment of IgA Nephropathy. Ergothioneine, a powerful antioxidant, is effective in providing protection from free radicals as well as boosting the immune system.

4. Lower high blood pressure

High potassium content in mushroom acts as a vasodilator, relaxing tension in blood vessels and therefore reducing blood pressure. However, if IgA Nephropathy patients have high potassium level in blood, they are not allowed to eat too much mushroom.

Whether IgA Nephropathy patients can eat mushroom depends on their own illness condition. If you use it improperly, it can also cause side effects.
