What is Stage 4 Lupus Nephritis?

At stage 4, more than 50% of the glomeruli have been attacked. Glomeruli are tiny blood vessels filtering wastes and toxins in the blood. When more than half of the glomeruli are damaged, large amounts of harmful substances accumulate in the body, blocking the blood circulation and causing ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys. As a result, Stage 4 Lupus Nephritis will experience some symptoms.

Possible symptoms of Stage 4 Lupus Nephritis

For many, the first noticeable symptom is swelling of the legs, ankles and feet. Less often, there can be swelling in the face or hands.

Other symptoms can vary from person to person and from day to day. They may include:

-Weight gain

-High blood pressure

-Dark urine

-Foamy, frothy urine

-Frequent and urgent urination, especially at night.

Since symptoms and severity vary from person to person, treatments are individually tailored to meet a person’s particular circumstances.

● Medicines: They may include corticosteroids, immunosuppressive drugs, and medications to prevent blood clots or lower blood pressure if needed.

Dialysis: Even with treatment, loss of kidney function sometimes progresses. If both kidneys fail, and people develop into End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), they may need dialysis.
