Lupus Nephritis

The condition where the body’s immune system attacks our tissues and organs is termed lupus. Lupus affects skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs, and specifically, when it affects the kidneys it is termed lupus nephritis. Healthcare professionals treat lupus nephritis by giving the treatment that helps to reduce inflammation in the kidneys, decrease immune system activity and block the immune cells from attacking the kidneys or making antibodies that attack the kidneys. Early diagnosis of lupus nephritis depends on blood tests, urinalysis, X-rays, ultrasound scans of the kidneys, and sometimes a kidney biopsy. On urinalysis, a nephritic picture is found and red blood cell casts, red blood cells, and proteinuria are found. Drugs like steroids and antimalarial drugs are prescribed for lupus nephritis along with diet changes and monoclonal antibodies.
