Nephrologist 's  Response
Sometime being on steroid itself is exhausting. Most patients do mistakes in avoiding salt and restricting fluids too much. 4-6 g salt per day is ok. Drink water to thirst. Omega 3 fatty acids which are derived from fatty fishes has been shown to be of some benefit in IgA nephropathy. Eating couple of pieces of fish is OK. Fatty fish are good for their fatty acids.
