Kidney pain is not a commonly seen symptoms of Lupus. However, there are indeed some people with lupus suffering from this discomfort. You will know the reason why kidney happens with lupus from this article.
Lupus is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissue, including renal tissues.
Lupus Nephritis is an inflammation on the kidneys caused by Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). This kind of kidney disease may cause kidney pain in rare case. If so, kidney pain will be caused by kidney infection and kidney stones.
The principal goal of therapy in Lupus Nephritis is to normalize renal function or, at least, to prevent the progressive loss of renal function.
1. Corticosteroid therapy should be instituted if the patient has clinically significant renal disease. Use immunosuppressive agents, particularly cyclophosphamide, azathioprine, or mycophenolate mofetil, if the patient has aggressive proliferative renal lesions, as they improve the renal outcome. They can also be used if the patient has an inadequate response or excessive sensitivity to corticosteroids.
2. Administer calcium supplementation to prevent osteoporosis if the patient is on long-term corticosteroid therapy, and consider adding a bisphosphonate (depending on renal function).
3. Avoid drugs that affect renal function, including Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), especially in patients with elevated creatinine levels. Nonacetylated salicylates can be used to safely treat inflammatory symptoms in patients with renal disease.
MICRO-CHINESE MEDICINE OSMOTHERAPY
This therapy is based on traditional Chinese medicines. Unlike the medicines listed above, Chinese herbs are more natural. The most important thing is Chinese herbs can achieve the goal of improving kidney function.
It works on kidneys from two aspects:
Expand blood vessels: The ingredients can help expanding blood vessels in order to increase blood and oxygen supply for the kidneys. This is to repair the damaged renal cells and protect them from further damage.
Anti-inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix: By this way, the body immune ability can be enhanced, so patients with Lupus Nephritis can normalize their immune system to large extent.
