How to Reduce High Blood Pressure for Lupus Nephritis Patients

How to Reduce High Blood Pressure for Lupus Nephritis PatientsLupus Nephritis is one common glomerulonephritis that can cause damage to many other organs and systems. As kidney filtration and secretion function declines, blood pressure may increase abnormally. To prevent more severe complications, Lupus Nephritis patients should reduce their high BP immediately.

Pathogenetic mechanism of hypertension for Lupus Nephritis patients

Glomeruli are the great part of the whole kidney filtering structure, and they are located in the renal parenchyma. Since Lupus Nephritis causes damage to glomeruli, these patients’ high blood pressure usually belongs to renal parenchymal hypertension (RPH). RPH is closely associated with fluid and sodium retention and increased blood volume.

When kidneys are damaged severely by Lupus, kidneys will fail to determine how much fluid and sodium to collect in the body. Too much fluid and sodium retention can trigger the increase of blood volume, resulting in high blood pressure.

How to lower high blood pressure for Lupus Nephritis patients?

In order to treat high blood pressure effectively, the treatment should begin from the following three aspects.

1. Non-medicine treatment: A healthy lifestyle can control high blood pressure effectively. For example, modify the living habits, quit smoking, quit alcohol, keep a good mood, do exercise regularly, and so on.

2. Medical treatment: High blood pressure has a link with RAS. To block RAS, there are two big types of medications: ACEI and ARBs. The using medicine principle is to avoid kidney damage, begin from low dosage and combine different drugs. In addition to ACEI and ARBs, diuretic, CCB, receptor inhibitor, and so on, can also be used to lower high blood pressure.

3. Kidney repairing treatment: Only if Lupus Nephritis is controlled very well, can patients manage their high blood pressure effectively. To treat Lupus Nephritis, Immunotherapy is one good choice.
