Will Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Cause Kidney Cyst

Compared with other, people over 50 years are more likely to develop kidney cyst. However, if you happen to be a person with lupus erythematosus, you may be also at a higher risk, not matter say you are affected by both SLE and elder age.

How does SLE cause kidney cyst?

SLE is a kind of immune disorder. In normal conditions, the immune system helps release specific antibodies to fight against the antigen--virus and bacteria, and prevent the diseases. However, in people with SLE, the poor immune system cannot function well enough to remove the antigens. As a result, the antibodies and antigens mix together as immune complex which builds up in the bodies. This will cause various damage to different organs and tissues.

When the immune complexes deposit in the kidneys, it will affect the nearby tissues, causing inflammations. This will make affected glomeruli scarring and sclerosis. So will this cause kidney cyst?

No, it will not cause a cyst in kidney directly. However, it will increase the risk to develop Kidney Cyst. Kidney Cyst relates to the immune system function. In detail, there is a layer of cells in the cyst. The cells can be controlled well, when your immune system can work completely. However, if not, it will develop and spread which will be stimulated to release fluids to form cyst in kidneys.

Is there any recommended treatment?

As mentioned above, SLE may be a trigger to harm immune system which will increase the development of Kidney Cyst.

Thereby, a treatment which can reverse both immune disorder and kidney cyst will be a target.

To control Kidney Diseases caused by immune disorder, Immunotherapy is designed. It helps rebuild a new immune system and use the new immune system to fight against the kidney disease.

In addition, immunotherapy is always used together with Micro-Chinese Medicine which helps shrink kidney cyst and improve kidney function naturally.
