Can Lupus Cause Uncontrolled High Blood pressureLupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Can lupus cause uncontrolled high blood pressure? Let’s take a look at this article and you will see.

How does high blood pressure occur with lupus?

Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a common problem associated with lupus. There is a link between these two diseases, namely, kidney damage. About 60% of patients with lupus are likely to develop Lupus Nephritis and will develop Kidney Failure after 5-20 years.

When kidney damage is caused, the renal arteries will get broken and be supplied with less blood and oxygen, leading to renal ischemia and renal anoxia. When kidneys cannot get sufficient blood and oxygen, they will release a series of hormones including renin, angiotensin and aldosterone which is known as RAA system. This system will increase the blood pressure constantly. If kidney function keeps reducing, lupus can cause uncontrolled high blood pressure.

How to lower high blood pressure in lupus?

There are many things you can do to control high blood pressure, for instance, low-sodium diet, nypotensive drugs (ARBs and ACEIs), exercise and acupuncture, etc. These method may have some effects, but the effects are subtle and temporary.

Take the safety and efficiency into account, Immunotherapy and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy are recommended. On one hand, Immunotherapy can help you to restore the normal immune structure so that it can repair itself, relieving symptoms in lupus. On the other hand, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is based on Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCM) and is used externally. The effective ingredients of the Chinese herbs have the function of expanding blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, and degrading extracellular matrix. These are to promote blood circulation so as to increase the elimination of wastes and toxins caused by lupus. What’s more, this therapy can also improve kidney function by repairing renal intrinsic cells. Ischemia and anoxia will be relieved, thus controlling high blood pressure.
