Membranous lupus nephritis

Membranous lupus nephritis is characterized by diffuse thickening of the glomerular capillary wall,with diffuse membrane thickening,and subepithelial deposits.In clinic,the patients often experience hematuria, high blood pressure and even Nephrotic Syndrome.Creatinine keeps normal or starts to elevate slightly.

In general,the following factors often affect the prognosis of membranous lupus nephritis.


In membranous lupus nephritis,high blood pressure,nephrotic syndrome, hematuria and other complications can occur.High blood pressure, Nephrotic Syndrome,and proteinuria are significant accelerators in worsening renal function.Effective control of these complications can improve the prognosis of membranous lupus nephritis enormously.You can email to kidneycares@hotmail.com  to get tips to manage these complications.


Treatment plays a significant role in influencing the prognosis of membranous lupus nephritis.The general treatment only can control the associated symptoms to slow down renal function decline,but it can not control the condition completely.

To control the associated symptoms and stop the renal function decline completely,immunotherapy is the effective treatment for membranous lupus nephritis.It has showed enormous curative effects in treating the disease.

Immunotherapy can suppress the inflammatory response,correct the immune dysfunction,and rebuild normal immune system.Additionally,it can activate the self-healing system in body to regenerate the impaired kidney tissues and cells.If so,renal function will be enhanced enormously. The prognosis of membranous lupus nephritis will be improved remarkably.
