Lupus With Diarrhea

Lupus With DiarrheaLupus, or SLE, can affect almost any part of patients’ body, but it affects the gastrointestinal system relatively uncommonly. However, some Lupus patients are plagued with diarrhea, one common gastrointestinal disorder. Why do Lupus patients have diarrhea? How to manage it?

How does Lupus affect gastrointestinal (GI) system?

Lupus is one autoimmune disease that can cause inflammatory reaction in any part of the body. The GI system is the body’s pathway for taking in, digesting and disposing foods and drinks what we consume. When GI system is involved in Lupus, a series of problems may occur.

In fact, not all of gastrointestinal disorders are always caused by Lupus attacks. Sometimes, these problems are traced to side effects of patients’ medications. For example, in order to manage Lupus, patients are always recommended to take anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and corticosteroids, while diarrhea, nausea and vomiting are the common side effects of these medications.

Managements for diarrhea in Lupus patients

Firstly, patients should determine whether diarrhea is related to some medication. The method is to stop the drug which may cause this disorder. If this symptom disappear, patients are suggested to restart the drug and see whether diarrhea returns. If diarrhea returns, it means this problem is caused by this drug. If not, patients can determine other drugs according to this method. Once the drug which causes patient’s diarrhea is found out, patients should consult their doctor or doctor from Kidney Service China to change their medications.

If patient’s diarrhea is due to Lupus, patients should take fundamental therapies to treat their Lupus. Then, the related symptoms will disappear naturally. Until now, steroids, Plasma Exchange and Immunotherapy are effective to treat Lupus. Try to choose the best treatment based on patient’s illness condition.
