How to help IgA Nephropathy patients with high cholesterol and high blood pressure? High blood pressure and high cholesterol are two common complications of IgA Nephropathy, here we will talk about how to help IgA Nephropathy patients if they are suffering high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) are commonly used in clinical to treat high blood pressure. These medications not only lower blood pressure also play a certain role in reducing proteinuria. Pregnant women should not take ARBs or ACE inhibitors because they can damage the unborn baby. Statins are the medicines used the most often to treat high cholesterol, and they often work the best. The decision to use medicine to treat high cholesterol is usually based on your LDL level and your risk for heart attack and stroke. Medicine is always used along with a diet and exercise plan.

Oatmeal, oat bran and high-fiber foods, fish and omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts, almonds and other nuts can help lower cholesterol level to some extent. Besides this, a healthy lifestyle includes maintaining a healthy weight, quitting smoking, getting adequate exercise and reducing stress.

As to the treatment for IgA Nephropathy itself, some patients begin to pay more attention to the repair to the kidney damage, not just the treatment to those symptoms or complications of IgA Nephropathy.
