Lupus Nephritis can happen at any age but more commonly in female than in male. If you or your relative has this disease, you may find the Lupus Nephritis prognosis isn’t as good as we expects. Well then, how to improve the prognosis of Lupus Nephritis?
How about Lupus Nephritis prognosis?
According to clinical research, 75%-85% of Lupus Nephritis patients can live as long as 5-10 years. If patients have the following problems, it may indicate bad prognosis:
- Heavy proteinuria
- High blood pressure
- Obvious decline of kidney function
- The pathology shows diffuse proliferative glomerulonephritis
Therefore, symptoms and the extent of kidney damage mainly affects the prognosis of Lupus Nephritis. Then, to improve it, we should begin with these two aspects.
How to improve Lupus Nephritis prognosis?
The onset of Lupus Nephritis is due to immune complexes, the combination of antibodies and antigens, deposit in glomerular endothelial, epithelial, basement membrane and mesangial area. Overtime, these complexes can damage glomeruli, kidney filters. Therefore, removing these substances from the body is the key to improve Lupus Nephritis prognosis.
Immunosuppressants, blood purifications, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy are three treatment options. Immunosuppressants are used to inhibit the activity of immune complexes by weakening immune system. Blood purifications can clear immune complexes from the body, but patients may need to accept it repeatedly. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is effective on breaking down immune complexes and discharging them out of the body via circulatory system.

Additionally, because Lupus Nephritis is one autoimmune kidney disease, regulating immune system is necessary to prevent its relapse. Here, we recommend some herbal medicines such as cordyceps sinensis that are able to boost patients’ immunity and fight against infections and inflammations.
Finally, to improve Lupus Nephritis prognosis, a healthy diet and lifestyle is also very important. They can not only ease patients’ symptoms but also slow down the progression of Lupus Nephritis.
