Lupus, or SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus), is resulted from autoimmune disorder that the immune system attacks the healthy organs and tissues. Some people with Lupus find facial swelling? Is there any relation between them? If so, how does lupus cause facial swelling?
First of all, I want to tell you that lupus can cause facial swelling indirectly. The root cause is renal damage.
How does facial swelling occur in lupus?
Lupus is characterized by a immune complex deposition that can cause damage to many organs and systems, among which kidney is easy to be attacked. There is a medical name for this condition “ Lupus Nephritis”. Our kidneys are the producer of urine. They keep the water and electrolyte balance of the body by producing urine and discharging wastes and toxins. If they are damaged by lupus, they cannot play this part adequately. As a result, fluid retention and protein leakage may also appear. Under this condition, swelling is more likely to occur in the legs, ankles, hands or feet, eyelids or face.
What’s more, side effect of medicines may also be one of the causes of facial swelling with lupus. Your doctor may prescribe you some immunosuppressive agents, which are uses to inactivate the immune system to reduce the accumulation of immune complexes. Long term use or large dosage of this kind of medicine will cause side effects on your body. Some are even be toxin to your kidneys. Therefore, you should take some natural treatment to relieve facial swelling.
