New Treatment Option for Lupus Nephritis other than Steroid
Lupus Nephritis is an autoimmune disorder caused by lupus. At present, hormone treatment is still the most common therapy for the disease. Hormone can suppress the abnormal immune response and relieve the relative symptoms effectively. It plays an important role in delaying the progression of Lupus Nephritis.
However, many patients with Lupus Nephritis usually have the confusion that once they reduce the dosage of hormone, the disease will relapse very soon. Every relapse of Lupus Nephritis is a very big trauma to the kidneys. Then how does it occur?
Our human body has a very powerful immune system which can prevent the outside invaders like virus, bacteria etc into body. However, in some cases, the immune system is activated improperly and it can not tell the healthy tissues and cells from the outside harmful substances. As a result, the proteins known as antibodies produced by immune system form immune complexes and cause damage to kidneys. Once someone is affected by lupus virus, the relevant antibodies impair the filters in kidneys thus resulting in Lupus Nephritis.
The hormone can suppress the abnormal immune response for the time being. Therefore, it can relieve the symptoms of Lupus Nephritis.
However, once there are some factors which can initiate lupus activity, the lupus virus will cause the abnormal immune response to occur again.
To treat Lupus Nephritis, the treatment should not only able to suppress the immune inflammation, but also can correct the immune system and restore the impaired glomeruli. In 2012, the latest treatment: immunotherapy is introduced into the treatment of Lupus Nephritis.
Immunotherapy is not a single treatment, but a comprehensive treatment system including brand new diagnosis, brand new medicine and brand new treatment methods.
Immunotherapy can suppress the abnormal immune inflammation by using a series of hormones with low side effects. Therefore, it can stop the further damage to kidneys effectively.
However, it is not possible for the pathological immune complexes to exist in the patients’ body. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy plays a vital role in clearing up the immune complexes. The effective medicines not only can degrade the immune complexes and make them dissolve in blood, but also can improve the systemic blood circulation. Ultimately, the immune complexes will be passed out of body in urine.
After the above treatment, the progression of Lupus Nephritis can be inhibited effectively.
