Lupus Nephritis occurs when kidneys are involved in SLE, systemic lupus erythematosus. As one common glomerulonephritis, Lupus Nephritis can trigger many other symptoms. High blood pressure is complication that can cause further kidney damage, if uncontrolled effectively. How to overcome hypertension for Lupus Nephritis patients?
Owing to Lupus Nephritis, high blood pressure is called renal hypertension.
The onset of renal hypertension is usually related to renal parenchymal disease and renal artery diseases. Lupus Nephritis patients’ high blood pressure is mainly due to renal parenchymal disease.
Damage to glomeruli along with renal tubular shrinkage is the main cause of hypertension for Lupus Nephritis patients.
When immune complexes made of various antibodies and antigens deposit in kidneys and induce inflammatory reactions, kidney filters, glomeruli, are damaged easily and can’t play their filtration function smoothly. Then, extra fluid and sodium retain in the blood, increasing blood volume. Finally, patients’ blood pressure increases gradually.
It is quite necessary to treat Lupus Nephritis patients’ high blood pressure timely.
High blood pressure is one common Lupus Nephritis symptom, and it, in turn, can cause further kidney damage. This is because high blood pressure is one direct reason for renal ischemia and anoxia.
