Lupus erythematosus nephropathy is one of autoimmune diseases, belonging to the range of connective tissue disease, due to the presence of the toxin is different, can be pided into discoid lupus erythematosus nephropathy (DLE), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus, lupus and other types of deep. Lupus erythematosus nephropathy in the role of the toxin, slow onset, insidious, clinical manifestations, be the most changeful. Discoid lupus erythematosus toxin damage, mainly to the local skin, systemic lupus erythematosus toxin damage, often involving multiple organs, systems. About 70% to 85% of patients with lupus erythematosus have skin manifestations.
Caused by lupus nephritis, as the name suggests, is a dangerous "wolf" like the disease. In the past 10 years after diagnosis, the development of renal failure in the past 50% years, and now, due to the progress of treatment, has been reduced to 20%, the disease is sometimes active, sometimes static, in the treatment of highly skilled. On the one hand to the skill of his doctors, on the other hand, to deepen the understanding of their patients, disease treatment, in order to get the best curative effect. In the special clinic, lupus nephritis patients accounted for about 30%, it can be seen that the disease is very common. The majority of patients are young women, and many patients are taking the drug treatment, which led to the emergence of female menstruation not the case, so for many patients say why he did not come to menstruation, it is because during the course of treatment, medication related to.
At the same time, through the observation of clinical cases of lupus nephritis, found a variety of clinical manifestations, even though the original stable condition, under the influence of some factors and activities, and the performance is not the same, so, if not a specialist, it is easy to misdiagnosis, for example, fever, joint pain, aching muscles may be regarded as a skin disease, skin allergies. Pleural effusion and pericardial effusion is considered to be tuberculous pleurisy or tuberculous pericarditis. Abnormal liver function may be considered hepatitis. Therefore, lupus nephritis patients with the above situation is best to look for nephropathy specialist, do the necessary laboratory tests, so as not to delay the disease.
The medical treatment of the disease has never been interrupted, but it is a pleasure to develop the appropriate treatment. There are two possible development of lupus nephritis to uremia, one is likely to be severely damaged kidney tissue, normal kidney tissue is only about 20%, this situation can only rely on dialysis to maintain life. Another possibility is due to the activity of lupus nephritis caused by inflammation, and decreased renal function, in this case we often used to relieve the symptoms of renal failure after abdominal dialysis, with conventional hormone therapy, CTX shock treatment and combined with TCM therapy, can often be reversed uremia, do not need to use membrane dialysis, the patient recovered normal life. As long as the history of lupus nephritis has not been more than 2 years, B ultrasound without narrowing the kidney, or a short period of rapid decline in renal function in patients with uremia, the use of these methods is likely to restore renal function.
In the past 10 years, due to the continuous improvement of immunoassay technology, especially in recent years, with the combination of Chinese and Western medical treatment, the prognosis of the disease has been greatly improved. The mortality rate or survival rate of lupus erythematosus has a great relationship with the economic and medical level of the local population. At present, the 10 year survival rate of lupus erythematosus in China can reach to 84%, which has reached the international advanced level. Systemic lupus erythematosus nephritis diagnostic criteria for the diagnosis of early, light and atypical lupus erythematosus nephropathy cases increased significantly, and rapidly fulminant death cases have seen many patients with chronic process, some patients may have a short time to complete remission, some patients had transient episodes can be fully restored after a short course after a few months.
