Lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease caused by a problem with the autoimmune system, and it is very difficult for this disease to be treated for such disorders, so for us it should be time Do a good job on the prevention of lupus erythematosus nephritis, then how do we prevent lupus erythematosus nephritis?
Pay attention to drug toxicity
Lupus erythematosus-related drugs are hydralazine, procaine amide, isoniazid, methyldopa, cloprazine and quinidine, especially before the two are common. May be related to drugs in the hydrazine, amine, mercapto groups. Therefore, patients with lupus erythematosus based lupus erythematosus should pay attention to the toxicity of these drugs to patients with lupus erythematosus.
Attention to physical factors
Systemic lupus erythematosus close relatives incidence rate of up to 5% to 12%, the same egg incidence of up to 69%, lupus patients relatives of other autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid, dermatomyositis, scleroderma, dryness and psoriasis and other morbidity High incidence of blacks and Asian descendants higher than those of Caucasians, all of which suggest that lupus is affected by genetic factors. And female multiple, patients with low levels of testosterone, then explain the endocrine factors, especially estrogen in patients with lupus in vivo and the level of lupus nephritis associated with the incidence. Therefore, for the basis of autoimmune disease in patients with lupus erythematosus, including relatives of autoimmune disease, should be highly vigilant, once the illness should think of autoimmune diseases, once suffering from autoimmune diseases, should be actively treated, To prevent the occurrence of lupus nephritis caused by kidney damage.
Avoid sun exposure
Ultraviolet radiation aggravated lupus nephritis is more common. Because UV can make DNA into thymine dimer, and the increase in antigenicity, to promote systemic lupus erythematosus occurs. Therefore, patients with lupus nephritis in their daily lives should be avoided in the strong sunlight for a long time exposure to reduce the excessive UV radiation caused by renal damage.
Active treatment of viral infection
In recent years, experimental studies have found that viral infection may be related to the occurrence of systemic lupus erythematosus. Therefore, we should actively treat a variety of viral infections. Especially for the upper respiratory tract virus infection such a "minor illness", must not be taken lightly.
Understand the above several measures to prevent lupus erythematosus nephritis, we should try to stay away from these factors, to develop good habits, away from lupus erythematosus nephritis disease, away from kidney disease.
