Why Patients With Lupus Nephritis Have Frequent Urination

Why Patients With Lupus Nephritis Have Frequent UrinationLupus nephritis is a common kidney disease, and it is cause by systemic lupus erythematosus, which is an autoimmune disease. Lupus nephritis can cause many symptoms, and a common symptom is frequent urination.

Why patients with lupus nephritis often have frequent urination?

For patient with lupus, when their immune complexes accumulating in their kidneys, they will damage patient’s kidney structure, and that will cause them to have lupus nephritis.

Kidney contains about one million nephrons, and nephron consists of kidney tubule and glomerulus. Kidney tubule has the function of reabsorbing the filtered fluid and nutrients that are needed by our body, and about 99% fluid leaking through glomeruli will be reabsorbed back to blood by kidney tubules.

While the accumulated immune complexes can also damage patient’s kidney tubule, and when kidney tubules are damaged severely, there will be lots of fluid leaking out.

As a matter of fact, patients will have a lot of activity and sweat a lot in their daytime, so frequent urination at night is more obvious.

How to treat frequent urination caused by lupus nephritis?

The root cause of frequent urination in patient with lupus nephritis is the kidney damage caused by immune complexes.

To treat this symptom, what can be done is to inhibit the inflammatory reaction in patient’s kidney, and repair patient’s kidney damage.

To stop the progression of inflammatory reaction caused by immune complexes, medicines like glucocorticoid and cytotoxic drugs are often used and they are effective.

While to repair patient’s kidney damage, Chinese medicine will be a good choice. Western medicine is good at control patient’s condition, but it has little function in repair patient’s kidney damage. But Chinese medicine is famous for its function in regulating patient’s body function systematically, which can also help improving patient’s kidney function. Besides, the effect of some therapies in treating kidney diseases, like hot compress therapy, full bath therapy, acupuncture and moxibustion, has already been proven.

Thereby, a treatment which combines Chinese medicine and western medicine will be a perfect choice in treating frequent urination in lupus nephritis.
