Can You Have Lupus Nephritis With No Protein in Urine

Protein in urine or proteinuria is one typical symptom of Lupus Nephritis, because of damaged kidney filtering structure. However, this doesn't mean all Lupus Nephritis patients should have this symptom.

The onset of Lupus Nephritis is associated with the disorders of immune complex production, immune cells and cytokines. All of these cause immunity damage to kidneys. As kidney filters are damaged and fail to filter blood normally, they are unable to eliminate waste chemicals and keep essential nutritions in the body successfully. In this case, protein is more likely to leak from the kidney into urine, forming proteinuria.

In addition to proteinuria, hematuria, swelling, back pain, high blood pressure, joint pain, skin rash, etc, are also common symptoms of Lupus Nephritis. These are only common for these patients, but not every patient should have all of the above symptoms. That is to say, patients indeed can have Lupus Nephritis with no protein in urine.

Proteinuria is one factor that affects Lupus Nephritis prognosis, and well control of proteinuria can help improve patients' prognosis. If patients want to control their kidney disease and live a normal life, they are suggested to accept some therapies that can treat Lupus Nephritis from the root.

Generally, after about one or two months, patients' illness condition can be improved obviously.
