Lupus Nephritis is divided into 6 classes.

Class 1

Known as Minimal mesangial glomerulonephritis

Prevalence: Seen in 10-25% of people with lupus (SLE). 5% of lupus nephritis cases are class 1.

Class 2

Known as: Mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis

Prevalence: 20% of lupus nephritis

Class 3

Known as: Focal glomerulonephritis

Prevalence: 25% of lupus nephritis cases are class 3

Class 4

Known as: Diffuse proliferative nephritis

Prevalence: 40% of lupus nephritis cases are class 4. Very severe subtype.

Class 5

Known as: Membranous glomerulonephritis

Prevalence: 10% of lupus nephritis cases are class 5.

Class 6

Known as: Advanced sclerotic

In class 1, class 2, class 3 and class 5, kidney failure is uncommon, and in class 4 and 6, kidney failure is common. Which class are you in? For some cases, even if Lupus Nephritis goes into stage 5, it can be reversed. Therefore, to have a good therapeutic effect, you should have a clear diagnosis firstly and than make a systemic treatment plan.

Treatment for Lupus Nephritis Stage 4

Conventional treatment is to use steroids and immunosuppressants to inhibit immune reaction and reduce its damage to kidneys. They are helpful, but they are not enough. Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment, which can make the therapeutic effect better.

This is a systemic treatment, which is composed of 9 therapies. They can work together to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body so as to prevent the excess substances from causing kidney damage and counteracting the effect of medication you take. They can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that active ingredients of medicine, oxygen, nutrients and other essential elements can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, they play roles in bidirectional regulation, which can not only help suppress immune system, but also boost immune system if necessary so as to reduce the relapse greatly.

After about one week’s treatment, you will see a lot of cotton-like substances in urine, which are those wastes being passed out.

After about half month’s treatment, your high creatinine, urea and uric acid level will be reduced, and other symptoms such as weakness, back pain, cold limbs and so on will get relieved.

After about one month’s treatment, your lupus nephritis will be under control.

All in all, it is still possible for you to reverse Lupus Nephritis stage 4 if you have some slight classes, and if your class is serious, do not give hope yet, because it is possible for you to protect residual renal function and keep dialysis away.
