Question: I have MPGN, autoimmune haemolytic anaemia and lupus anticoagulant. Is there a link?

Is There a Link Between MPGN and LupusAnswer: Thanks for your inquiry. In some cases, there indeed a link between MPGN, autoimmune haemolytic anaemia and lupus anticoagulant. In fact, all of the three bad results are caused by SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus), which is an autoimmune disease. Let me explain to you.

1. MPGN. It stands for Mesangial Proliferative Glomerular Nephritis, a condition where inflammation occur on the kidney. Lupus can cause disordered system, stimulating the body itself produce many antibodies. When antibodies units with antigen, immune complex forms. These excessive substances can deposit on the glomeruli, causing inflammation on this area, thus MPGN occurs.

2. Autoimmune Haemolytic Anaemia (AIHA). The disordered system cannot regular the production of antibodies, leading to the formation of autoantibodies and alexin that will stick to the surface of red blood cells. With certain reaction, it can damage red blood cells, thus resulting in AIHA.

3. Lupus anticoagulant. Lupus anticoagulants are antibodies against substances in the lining of cells. These substances prevent blood clotting in a test tube. They are called phospholipids. Most often lupus anticoagulants are found in persons with diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

Now, you may have got a general understanding about the link. Then, you should take treatment to manage these problems.
