    What Happen If Lupus Nephritis Patients Stop Medication Freely

    2015-05-09 03:46| Font Size A A A

    What Happen If Lupus Nephritis Patients Stop Medication FreelyMedication plays an important role in relieving related symptoms and controlling the progression of Lupus Nephritis. Well then, what happen if lupus nephritis patients stop medication by themselves?

    Lupus Nephritis is inflammation of the kidney that is caused by systemic lupus erythematous (SLE). With the disease, patients are prone to suffer from numerous symptoms due to decreased renal function, like swelling or edema, weight gain, urinary tract infection, dark urine, foamy urine, proteinuria, frequent urination at the night, itching skin, and so on.

    In order to control or even relieve the related symptoms, some medications are used in lupus nephritis treatment.

    Corticosteroids-- these strong anti-inflammatory drugs can decrease inflammation.

    Immunosuppressive drugs--these drugs, which are related to the ones used to treat cancer or prevent the rejection of transplanted organs, work by suppressing immune system activity that damages the kidneys. They include cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan), azathioprine (Lmuran) and mycophenolate (Cellcept).

    ACE inhibtors or ARBs--these medicines can help lower high blood pressure and prevent blood clots.

    What happen if patients stop medicines freely?

    Without doctors’ promise, if patients stop medications freely, some symptoms will occur again or the some symptoms will become worsening. All in all, it is not a wise decision to stop medicines freely. However, with the medication treatment, loss of kidney function sometimes progresses. If both kidneys fail, people with lupus nephritis may need dialysis or kidney transplant.

    Well then, is there any other treatment rather than western medicines?

    Of course. In our Treatment center point, we do mainly use herbal medicines to deal with kidney damage and restore kidney function. What’s more, on the basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine, more systemic treatments have been created, like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath and so on.
