Details: My wife's renal biopsy report shows Lupus Nephritis class II. Is it critical stage?

Expert Answer

According to pathological manifestations, Lupus Nephritis can be divided into six classes. In class II, the kidney lesion is usually limited in glomerular mesangial area. In light microscope, patients usually don't find any disorder or only find mild mesangial proliferation, while immunogluorescence can detect the accumulation of IgM, C3C4, C1q, etc, in glomerular mesangial area.

From the above analysis, we can know although kidneys have begun to be damaged in Class II, it is still not so critical. Therefore, patients don't need to be so worried. This is because prompt treatments can help reverse kidney damage and treat Lupus Nephritis fundamentally.

Immunotherapy is one effective therapy that includes immune diagnosis, immune clearance, immune blockage, immune tolerance, immune protection and immune adjustment. Just because of these six steps, the immune complexes can be eliminated from the root, immune system is normalized, and damaged kidney cells can get recovery gradually.

To strengthen the therapeutic effects of this therapy, some auxiliary methods may also be used such as acupuncture, medicated bath, cycle therapy and so on. A systemic treatment plan can help prevent class II lupus nephritis from worsening. To obtain one detailed treatment plan, you can consult the online doctor.
