Treatment for SLE Nephrotic Syndrome other than Steroids

2014-03-05 08:45

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disorder, where multiple body organs and systems are involved. In more than 60% cases of SLE, the patients will have kidney involvement. Nephrotic syndrome is a common sign of SLE. What is the treatment for SLE nephritic syndrome other than steroids?

SLE nephritic syndrome

Glomeruli with tiny holes act as filters in kidneys. In right condition, the blood with useful substances and waste products flow through glomeruli. The metabolic waste products will be eliminated from body and the substances that body needs will remain in body.

In SLE, however, the immune system of the body fails to function normally and attacks different body parts. When the kidneys are involved, the abnormal immune response will cause the inflammation of glomeruli. When the glomeruli become scarred and necrotic, they will become leaky. As a result, a large amount of protein will pass through the holes, ending up in urine. Nephrotic Syndrome will result if high levels of protein become lost in urine.

Steroids for SLE nephritic syndrome

Steroids have functions of anti-inflammation and immunosupressio and also they can decrease the permeability of small blood vessels and cellular membrane. Therefore, steroids can reduce the leakage of protein in urine in nephritic syndrome. However, they can not correct immune disorder and restore the impaired glomeruli.

Treatment for SLE nephritic syndrome other than steroids

Immunotherapy and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be applied in the whole treatment process.

Immunotherapy can correct the immune disorder and help the body rebuild a normal immune system. Hence, the underlying cause of kidney inflammation and kidney impairment will be controlled.

To restore the leaky glomeruli, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be applied. This therapy can stimulate the self-renewing and self-repairing of the glomeruli. If the impaired glomeruli can be reversed, SLE nephritic syndrome will be controlled fundamentally.
