Lupus is not a universally fatal disease and most patients can be live with lupus to a normal life span with close follow-up and treatment. However, lupus does vary in intensity and degree, so some people would die of lupus when their illness condition cannot be controlled. Among the complications of lupus, lupus nephritis is one of cause of death for patients.
Once lupus starts flare-up, the disordered immune system would possibly hurt
any tissues and organs and kidney is one of them. During the furious
immunoreaction, in the patients’ blood are a great number of immune complexes
that would stimulate a new furious immunoreaction. It may hurt kidney severely
and patients would lose much kidney function in a short period.
Current recommended treatment for lupus nephritis
In our hospital, Immunotherapy is the new treatment for lupus nephritis and
it is the collection of several effective therapies and the comprehensive plan
for patients. In order to control lupus nephritis quickly, patients need to
receive blood purification in the step of immune clearance. The mistaken
antibodies and immune cells can be removed from the blood in order to block the
damage on kidneys.
Then immune blocker is used for patients, such as hormone, immunosuppressive
agents etc. for immune clearance provide a clean internal environment; the
mediations will function much better. Immune blocker can keep the immunoreaction
from hurting kidney cells.
However, immune blocker brings about many side effects, so patients cannot
receive it for a long time. During this time, immune regulation can return a
normal immune system for patients, which can block the resource of furious
inflammation. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the main therapy in this
step. It is an external application and people can enjoy the good curative
effect only by lying on the two little medicine bags. It can balance the
coordination between the organs and tissues. Once patients’ immune system is
normal, all the damage in kidneys would be removed at all.
