High Blood Pressure Control for Lupus Nephritis Patients

High Blood Pressure Control for Lupus Nephritis PatientsLupus Nephritis is caused by SLE, while nearly 50%~55% of SLE patients also have high blood pressure. For Lupus Nephritis patients, their high blood pressure can reflect the severity of their kidney failure, so patients should pay highly attention to their high blood pressure control.

The treatment should depend on the causes

When high blood pressure is caused by kidney disease, we call it renal hypertension which has a close link with the decline of glomerular function. Lupus Nephritis occurs when a large amount of antibodies combine antigens to form immune complexes and deposit in kidneys causing glomerular damage. When glomeruli can’t remove extra fluid and sodium normally, fluid and sodium retention makes blood volume expanded. Then, patients’ blood pressure increases.

How to reduce high blood pressure with Lupus Nephritis?

Three methods can help control hypertension for most patients with Lupus Nephritis. If you want to get individual suggestions, you are recommended to consult the Doctor online directly or email to

1. Food and lifestyle therapy: Modify living habits, stopping smoke and alcohol, treat stress correctly, limit the intake of fluid and sodium, develop a low-fat diet, and so on. All of these are helpful to manage blood pressure.

2. Drug therapy: Generally, ACEI and ARBs are the first choice of lupus nephritis patients to reduce their high blood pressure. Additionally, diuretic, CCB, beta-blocker, etc, may also be used, according to patients’ illness condition.

3. Immunotherapy: This therapy focuses on treating Lupus Nephritis from the root instead of lowering high blood pressure directly. Through eliminating immune complexes, repairing damaged kidney cells and protect the remaining kidney cells, Immunotherapy can reverse Lupus Nephritis successfully. As long as kidneys work normally, renal hypertension can be managed well.
