Can Rheumatoid Arthritis Cause Kidney Failure

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-04-14 06:26

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder featured with synovitis. It can involve multiple body organs and systems including kidney. Can rheumatoid arthritis cause kidney failure?

Rheumatoid arthritis and Kidney Failure

Immune system is a defense system of the body. It can protect the body against the foreign harmful substances by producing antibodies. Therefore, our body can keep in a healthy state. However, in rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system fails to function normally and cause immune complexes to form in blood. The immune complexes can cause inflammation of kidneys. If the inflammation can not be controlled, it will cause damage to kidney tissues and cells.

Kidneys are composed of a cluster of small blood vessels. Necrotizing vasculitis is a common complication of rheumatoid arthritis. When the small blood vessels in kidneys become necrotic, renal function will decline significantly. Eventually, Kidney Failure will be the result.

In addition, over time, rheumatoid arthritis can cause amyloidosis. Amyloidosis can cause scarring of kidney tissues and cells. Kidney Failure will be the result in some cases.

Treatment for kidney failure in rheumatoid arthritis

To treat kidney failure in rheumatoid arthritis, the first treatment step is to correct the immune disorder and build normal immunity. This treatment step can control the root cause of kidney impairment. Immunotherapy is a recommended treatment for the patients.

Another treatment goal is to restore impaired kidney tissues and cells. If the kidney structure can be reversed, it will bring about renal function improvement. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can stimulate the self-repairing of the body tissues and cells. If the kidney structure can be reversed, renal function will be improved remarkably. Hence, kidney failure in rheumatoid arthritis will be controlled.
