How Does Lupus Nephritis Cause Swelling

How Does Lupus Nephritis Cause SwellingSwelling is a common symptom of lupus nephritis, it can bring great pain to patients both in physical and mental. So, how does lupus nephritis cause swelling?

In clinic, lupus nephritis is a kidney disorder caused by systemic lupus erythematosus(SLE). Normally, the immune system can protect the body from outside invaders and it can tell the difference between foreign harmful substances and the stuff inside the body.

However, in lupus nephritis, the immune system can not distinguish the difference between useful matters and harmful ones. As a result, the system attacks the normal tissues and cells, so, lupus nephritis occurs.

Generally, the symptoms of the disease are not obvious. When patients begin to present swelling, it indicates the renal damage has been very severe. The main causes of swelling are summarized as follows:

Water-sodium retention

In lupus nephritis, due to the decline GFR(glomerular filtration rate), kidney tubules will reabsorb less water, so, there is much water outside the cells, so, edema occurs.

Massive loss of protein

For healthy people, there is less protein in urine. However, in lupus nephritis, due to the decline of renal function and GFR, massive protein will flow into urine. Eventually, patients can experience swelling.

According to the above analysis, is there an effective method to treat swelling in lupus nephritis?

The answer is yes. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the most effective therapy. During the course, patients can lie on the bed, then, two bags contained shattered medicines are placed on patients’ back. With the help of osmosis device, the medicines can be permeated into kidney lesions directly.

Through dilating blood vessels, anti-flammation, anti-coagulation, preventing the formation of thrombosis, degrading the extracellular matrixes, renal function can be improved from root. Once kidney function is enhanced, edema may be relieved or even disappear.

In addition, the method is natural, all the medicines are from nature, they can not cause any harm to the body. And the cost is reasonable, most patients can accept. Any interest? Send an email to
