Can Purpura Nephritis Recover Totally
Purpura Nephritis is autoimmune disease. It is caused by the pathological changes of blood vessels caused by inflammatory reaction in blood vessels. As Purpura Nephritis often starts latently it is often neglected by the patients thus causing serious kidney injury.
For patients with Purpura Nephritis, some symptoms such as red spots on skin, joint pain, stomachache and other symptoms outside of kidneys can resolve automatically. Moreover, if they have Purpura Nephritis for the first time, they can totally recover through timely and effective treatments. However, some patients can not avoid allergens thus causing frequent allergic reactions, which is very likely to cause kidney damage and finally develops into Chronic Nephritis.
Therefore, the patients with skin purpura should catch the best therapeutic opportunity. Generally speaking, the renal injury occurs within one month or several days after the onset of skin purpura. However, in some cases, the kidney damage may occur 3~6 moths and even 2 years later. Therefore, the patients with skin purpura should do urine test, blood test and renal test regularly under their doctors’ guidance. For some patients, the urine, blood and other symptoms may recover. In that case, if they do not touch allergens in the later days, it is possible for them to keep good kidney condition.
However, for some patients, if the onset of Purpura Nephritis is at older ages, especially for the elderly patients with high blood pressure and a large amount of proteinuria, it is very difficulty for them to recover normal. This part of patients often has persistent proteinuria and renal function declines gradually. Therefore, all patients with skin purpura should take preventive measure in time so as to prevent Purpura Nephritis from developing into Renal Failure.
