Is Lupus Nephritis CurableIs Lupus Nephritis curable? As soon as people are diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis, this must be their first question. If the answer is no, it means they must live with this kidney disease for the rest of their lives. Will the answer make them disappointed?

What is Lupus Nephritis?

Lupus Nephritis is an inflammation of the kidney that is due to SLE, or called lupus. SLE is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system targets its own body tissues. Lupus Nephritis occurs when SLE involves kidneys.

In Lupus Nephritis, a lot of immune complexes, pathogenic factors, build up in the glomerular epithelial cells, endothelial cells, basement membrane and mesangial area. Along with kidney inherent cells’ proliferation, swelling or even necrosis, glomeruli can’t play its filtration function normally. Then, a lot of protein leaks into the urine, forming proteinuria. At the same time, hematuria and swelling may also appear.

Is Lupus Nephritis curable?

With Lupus Nephritis, some kidney cells are still working normally, some are damaged, but others are necrotic. For the necrotic cells, no treatment at present can make them repaired completely again, so Lupus Nephritis can’t be cured radically, but it is possible to stop or even reverse the kidney damage.

Immunotherapy is one maturely used therapy that can not only remove immune complexes from the body as well as kidneys and purify blood but also fix the damaged glomerular cells in different areas. Besides, some external herbal medicines are used to regulate patients’ immune system. With a normal immune system, immune complexes can no longer form, let alone building up in the body. Once Lupus Nephritis is controlled successfully, patients can live with it just like general population.

Although Lupus Nephritis is incurable at present, effective and prompt treatment can still guarantee patients to have a relatively healthy life and avoid kidney failure. Never miss any opportunity to improve your healthy and kidney condition, if you are also suffering from this disease.
