Lupus is an autoimmune disorder which can involve multiple body parts. Approximately 60% of lupus patients will have kidney damage in certain degree. Lupus nephritis refers to kidney disease caused by lupus. If no effective treatment is applied, chronic kidney disease (CKD) will be the result.

Stage 3 kidney disease in lupus nephritis

Lupus nephritis is featured with inflammation and scarring of glomeruli. Glomeruli are the basic functional units of kidneys. Each kidney is composed of around one million glomeruli. Glomeruli can filter out waste products from body normally.

However, in autoimmune disorder, the immune system attacks body tissues and cells by mistakes. When kidneys are involved, it can cause inflammation of kidneys. Eventually, the kidney tissues will become scarred.

In stage 3 kidney disease in Lupus Nephritis, the kidneys are damaged in moderation. A host of early signs and symptoms start to appear in this stage like high blood pressure, edema, proteinuria, bone disease etc. In some cases, stage 3 kidney disease in lupus nephritis can be reversed.

Treatment for stage 3 kidney disease in lupus nephritis

The conservative treatment only can control the symptoms, but has no significance in improving renal function. To treat stage 3 kidney disease in lupus nephritis fundamentally and completely, Immunotherapy and Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy will be the recommended treatments.

Immunotherapy has been applied to treat immune-medicated diseases and conditions for many years. It can treat diseases by suppressing or enhancing activity of immune system. In treating lupus nephritis, it can suppress the immune response and help the body rebuild a normal immunity. Hence, no more immune damage to kidneys will form.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy is an effective treatment to restore renal function. It can activate the self-healing system of the body. If the kidney tissues and cells can be restored, renal function will be improved. In this way, the kidney damage in stage 3 kidney disease may be reversed.

If immunotherapy and Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy perform effectively, the patients with stage 3 kidney disease in lupus nephritis will have renal function improvement.
