Lupus is an autoimmune disorder which can involve multiple body organs and systems.In more than half of cases,the patients will have kidney involvement.Kidney pain and protein in urine can be signs of kidney damage in lupus.

How does kidney damage occur in lupus?

Immune system is a powerful protective system of the body. When outside harmful substances invade into body,immune system will be initiated to defeat them.However,in autoimmune disorder,the immune system fails to distinguish the pathological substances from the healthy body tissues and cells.When the immune system attacks kidney tissues and cells,it will cause inflammation in kidneys.Inflammation may worsen renal function, resulting in chronic kidney disease (CKD) in lupus.When kidneys fail to function, kidney pain and protein in urine may result.

Kidney pain and protein in urine in lupus

Kidney pain in lupus can be attributed to a variety of conditions. Kidney infection can be one of causes of kidney pain in lupus. Immunosuppressive agents are commonly used to treat lupus. Long-term use of immunosuppressive agents can make the patients prone to infection.If your kidney pain is related to kidney infection,you should have it treated as soon as possible so there will not be further damage to your kidneys.

Protein in urine is another common sign of kidney damage in lupus.Glomeruli in kidneys can filter out waste products from body and keep the useful substances in blood.However,if kidney is impaired by lupus, the kidneys fail to prevent the leakage of protein from body, thus resulting in protein in urine. Protein in urine is a significant accelerator in worsening renal function.

Treatment for kidney pain and protein in urine in lupus

Kidney pain and protein in urine in lupus result from kidney damage and reduced renal function.To control these two conditions completely,the patients should have a treatment to restore the impaired kidney structure and control lupus completely.The combined treatment of immunotherapy and Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy are effective treatment options for treating lupus with kidney damage.
