I was just wondering if anyone else had heard or knew of a strong link between iga nephritis and gluten intolerance or other digestive issues? I'm receiving treatment to fix my immune system attacking my kidneys and have been reading up on the mechanism of activation of the iga in the body. Some of the literature is definitely over my head but there does seem to be the possibility that diet can influence the chain reaction that sparks the igA to start overreacting.
Has anyone else suffered from iga and been gluten intolerant? Did you find good results or no results from dietry changes? Interested in learning about anything remotely relevant!
I don't get much help from the consultant who says 'eat healthy'. A bit of a broad statement.... But I've cut out salt and am eating veg for breakfast lunch and dinner where ever possible. I've been looking into the AIP diet as well and at the very least the recipes are delicious.😀
Looking forward to any other advice or opinions!
