Why patient has kidney disease?

How does lupus affect patient’s kidney?

As we have said, lupus is an autoimmune disease, which means patient’s body will produce antibodies that will attack his own body. That will compound immune complexes, and they will be transported by patient’s blood circulation. When they are transported to patient’s kidneys, they may accumulate in there.

While when the immune complexes accumulate in patient’s kidney, if patient’s immune system can not remove them, they will cause inflammatory reaction. As a result, patient will have lupus nephritis.

Is lupus nephritis curable?

Kidney disease can be divided into chronic kidney disease and acute kidney disease. Acute kidney disease can be reversed, while chronic kidney disease has no cure so far.

Kidney disease is caused by the accumulation of foreign material. In fact, many kidney diseases are able to be reversed, and that is because we have the effective medicines to treat these diseases. For example, we have antibiotic, which is effective in treating diseases that are caused by bacteria. And that is why kidney diseases that are caused by bacteria can be reversed.
