Lupus Nephritis results from SLE, or Lupus. With its progress, this kidney disease can provoke some serious problems. Most of them may shorten patient’s life span. Therefore, life expectancy for Lupus Nephritis patients is one of their biggest concern.
Lupus Nephritis is one common kidney disease in which various antibodies combining with antigens build up in kidney filters and cause inflammation. This can lead damage to kidney functioning cells again and again. If uncontrolled effectively, patients with Lupus Nephritis will have very serious symptoms such as edema, twitching, and chronic kidney failure. With these symptoms, not only patients’ life quality but also life span will be affected largely.
Life expectancy for Lupus Nephritis patients
From the above analysis, we can know Lupus Nephritis patients’ life expectancy is determined by the severity of their symptoms and kidney function level. If controlled timely and effectively, patients can get obvious remission and live as long as general population. If not, they may have end stage kidney failure quickly. Then, their life expectancy will be shortened largely.
