Blood in Urine&Frequent Urination in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

2013-10-02 10:03

Blood in Urine&Frequent Urination in Systemic Lupus ErythematosusSystemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a kind of autoimmune disorder that autoantibodies are produced. These autoantibodies attack the body's healthy cells and tissues, resulting in inflammation and pain. Some individuals with this disease may experience blood in urine and frequent urination. What are the causes of these symptoms? Check this article for an answer.

When a person with SLE is affected by symptoms like blood in urine and frequent urination, he or she may have been affected by lupus and kidney disease (called Lupus Nephritis). Here is how the problems occur:

Blood in urine - As we know, there are a million of glomerular filters within each kidney. In Lupus Nephritis, inflammation of some or all of the glomerular filters reduces their ability to clear wastes out of the blood. The damage also allows macromolecules like red blood cells leak through the filters into the urine, thus leading to blood in the urine.

Frequent urination - It refers to urinating more than usual (generally 4-8 times per day). This is a common symptoms of Kidney Disease and may affect some people with lupus and renal disease. It may indicate the impairment of renal tubules.

Blood in urine and frequent urination in SLE and Nephritis needs to be treated before the kidney damage becomes more severe or if Kidney Failure is imminent. Treatment will be used to eliminate the symptoms and improve kidney function. A few treatment options are available, and most likely treatment will be individualized based on specific illness condition. Some treatments include:

▪ Diet. Dietary changes are often needed to eliminate items like sodium, proteins, and excessive calories.

▪ Blood pressure medications to regulate and reduce blood pressure.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to control inflammation, improve blood circulation, and repair the damaged kidneys.

Immunotherapy to rectify the immune dysfunction and avoid further relapse.
