The treatment for edema of hands and feet in IgA Nephropathy includes:

1. Remove extra fluid

A medication helps your kidneys to remove extra fluid from the blood. Removing the extra fluid can improve the control of blood pressure. Taking a diuretic along with an ACE inhibitor or an ARB often increases the effectiveness of these medicines.

2. Diet
