Lupus Nephritis is an auto-immune kidney disease caused by SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus). A wrong diet can worsen the illness condition. Can Lupus Nephritis patients add cooked onions and garlic to food? In the following article, I list several foods that can or cannot be taken by Lupus Nephritis patients?
● Foods that are not suggested
Spicy foods: Most of Lupus Nephritis patients suffer from internal thermal, spice food can worsen this condition. Therefore, pepper, leeks, onions, ginger, cinnamon, garlic etc should be avoided. However, ram onions and garlic will be not so irritated for internal tract.
Fatty foods: Fat, particular saturated fats can raise cholesterol levels and may contribute to inflammation. Therefore, fried foods, baked foods, cheese, butter, ice crease should be avoided.
● Foods that are allowed
Fresh vegetables and fruits: This is to ensure Lupus Nephritis patients get enough vitamins and carbohydrates. In general, cucumber, cauliflower, cabbages, carrot, cranberry, watermelon, apple, and cherry are good for you.
● Other suggestions
Except diet, you have to take some other treatments to prevent the progression of Lupus Nephritis. It may include:
1. Medicines: You doctor may prescribe you medicines which can involve corticosteroids and immunosuppressive drugs (cyclophosphamide, azathioprine, cellcept).
2. Dialysis: Even with medication, loss of kidney function sometimes progresses. If both kidneys fail, people with Lupus Nephritis may need dialysis.
3. Natural treatments: In fact, you can take some natural ways to avoid dialysis that can be a long and painful process. Since medicines and dialysis cannot repair the damaged renal tissues, they cannot solve the underlying problems. Therefore, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which is a comprehensive treatment innovated from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
It can fight against the inflammation on glomeruli and degrade immune complex deposition, thus improving glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and protecting kidney function.
