Does Lupus Cause Face Swelling

Does Lupus Cause Face SwellingLupus, or SLE, is resulted from autoimmune disorder that the immune system attacks the healthy organs and tissues. Some patients notice their face or eyelids become swollen or puffy. Is face swelling related to Lupus?

Today, we invite doctors from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital to tell us the answer and teach us how to deal with this problem.

Lupus is one lifelong immune disorder that can cause inflammation and damage to various organs if uncontrolled effectively in the early stage. As Lupus aggravates, it is more likely to interfere with kidney function. It is reported that up to 3 out of 4 lupus patients may suffer from kidney disease finally, and we call it Lupus Nephritis. When kidney filters are destroyed, fluid retention and protein leakage may appear easily. Face swelling or swelling in legs, ankles, hands or feet, is one typical sign of these problems.

Now, we can know Lupus indeed can induce face swelling and this may indicate the onset of kidney disease. In this case, patients should take action timely. Although Lupus Nephritis can’t be reversed thoroughly, effective treatments can minimize the kidney damage.

As Lupus and its presentation of face swelling is caused by inflammation in the body, steroids and immunosuppressants can help slow down the progress of Lupus and ease patients’ symptoms by lowering the immune ability and inhibiting inflammation. However, these medicines may also bring a series of problems such as infections, low immunity, weight again, moon face, etc. That’s to say, steroids and immunosuppressants can help reduce damage to the body caused by Lupus, but they are not the best treatment option.

Is there a treatment that can both minimize the body damage and have less or no side effects? Fortunately, the answer is yes. Micro Chinese medicine therapy, also called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, can help regulate immune system, eliminate immune complexes from the body and rebuild normal kidney structure. Besides, this therapy is one externally applied treatment, so it won’t cause any side effect. When patients’ immune system stops attacking their own organs and kidneys can work normally, face swelling will disappear naturally.
