Why Patient With Lupus Nephritis Has Hematuria

Why Patient With Lupus Nephritis Has HematuriaPatients with lupus nephritis can have many symptoms in their body, and blood in urine is also very common.

Hematuria in patient with lupus nephritis may be microscopic hematuria, and it may also be gross hematuria, which can cause patient’s urine color to be red.

Why patient with lupus nephritis has hematuria?

The major cause of hematuria in patient with lupus nephritis is the increase of glomerular filtration membrane’s permeability.

In glomeruli, there is filtration membrane, which can filter the wastes and toxins out from patient’s blood, and keep the nutrients in patient’s body. But when the immune complexes accumulate in the filtration membrane, they can damage it, and that may increase its permeability, which can lead to the leaking of many nutrients in our blood, among which red cells can also leak out through patient’s urine, and that can cause patient to have red color urine.

How can hematuria in lupus nephritis be treated?

The root cause of hematuria is the damage in patient’s glomerular filtration membrane, so to treat hematuria, the damaged filtration membrane should be repaired.

In the treatment, a treatment that combines traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine is recommended.

The increase of filtration membrane’s permeability is caused by the accumulation of immune complexes in glomeruli, and some western medicines are effective in control patient’s symptoms, like glucocorticoid, cytotoxic drugs, etc.

But western medicine has little effect in improving patient’s kidney function, while traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is good at this this aspect. TCM can help regulate patient’s body function, and a major theory of TCM is it aims at improving patient’s self-repairing ability to treat patient’s disease. But TCM also has its shortage, and that is it take a long time to have effect.

While by using the treatment of combining western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, patient’s condition can be controlled firstly, and then after the regulation of TCM, patient’s kidney damage can be repaired to a great degree.
