How to Avoid Dialysis for Patients with Lupus Nephritis
Lupus Nephritis is a severe complication of lupus. In the early stage of Lupus Nephritis, the patients usually do not present any obvious symptom or discomforts and the conventional testes like urine test and blood test can not reflect the abnormality of kidneys at all. As a result, in many cases, the patients may be diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis in its advanced stage, in which, their kidneys have been damaged badly.
For the patients with Lupus Nephritis, when their kidneys can not function normally to clear up toxins and excess fluid, they have to depend on dialysis to realize the task. Dialysis can replace partial function of the native kidneys to remove the small molecular harmful substances such as creatinine, urea nitrogen etc, but it is useless for the middle molecular and macromolecular harmful substances. Even if dialysis is performed regularly, the toxins will still build up in body to aggravate deterioration of renal function.
Lupus Nephritis is an autoimmune disorder, in which the immune system attacks the renal tissues and cells thus resulting in renal impairment. To achieve the above therapeutic goals, immunotherapy is recommended to the patients with Lupus Nephritis.
