Kidney Transplant for Kidney Failure in Lupus

2014-03-10 01:56

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease, in which multiple body organs and systems are affected. Kidney disease is one of serious complications of lupus. Without active treatment, kidney failure will be the result. Is kidney transplant a good treatment option for kidney failure in lupus?

Kidney Failure in lupus

The function of the body’s immune system is to protect the body against foreign outside harmful substances and keep the body healthy. However, in lupus, the immune system fails to function normally and attacks healthy body tissues by mistakes. The hyperactive immune response causes inflammation of kidney tissues. The inflammation can cause scarring of kidney tissues. Eventually, kidney failure will be the final result.

Kidney Transplant for kidney failure in lupus

Kidney transplant is a process, where the diseased kidney is replaced with a new one. However, the immune disorder can not be corrected at all. Unfortunately, in many cases, lupus will return to the new kidney, resulting in failure of the new kidney again. Therefore, transplant is not an ideal treatment option for lupus kidney failure at all.

For kidney failure in lupus, the best treatment is to control lupus and enhance renal function. If the kidney function can be improved, transplant will become unnecessary.

While steroids and other conventional treatment can cause a temporary remission of lupus, they can not stop renal function deterioration. To prevent the onset of kidney failure, Immunotherapy and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be the recommended treatments.

Immunotherapy can correct the immune disorder and help the body rebuild the normal immune system. If so, the immune system will stop attacking body cells. To improve renal function, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be the recommended treatment. This therapy can stimulate the self-repairing of kidney tissues and cells, thus enhancing renal function remarkably. If renal function can be enhanced, kidney transplant will not be required.
