Chinese Medicines Work Well For Treating Lupus Nephritis

2012-11-25 08:25

Lupus Nephritis is secondary to SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus) and characterized by its glomerular disease after a long period of time. Actually, LN is the complication of SLE. The effect of western medicines for this disease is not very good, but instead, TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) work well for this disease.

Chinese medicines could relieve the symptoms of Lupus Nephritis.

When LN is active, fever, skin rash, joint pain, edema, abdominal dropsy, excessive proteinuria, hematuria, reduced leucocyte cells and markedly elevated blood sedimentation etc. develop as its common symptoms. Sufficient dosage of steroids and immunosuppressants will be used to control development of this disease. Meanwhile, Chinese medicines can greatly relive those problems, and thus relieve the pain of patients.

LN is regarded as toxic heat flourishing and stasis blocking channels. Therefore, treatments for the disease should focus on clearing away heat and toxic materials and promoting blood circulation to remove meridian obstruction. The combination of both Chinese and western medicines could achieve better therapeutic effects for those patients.

Chinese medicines are able to alleviate side effects of steroids and immunosuppressants.

Hormones and immunosuppressants could treat Lupus Nephritis patients, but also bring many adverse effects, for instance, rarefaction of bon, menstrual disorder, mental problems and various infections etc. If Chinese medicines are used during the treatment of this kidney problem, then those side effects could be alleviated.

Relapse can be reduced if TCM is taken.

Almost everybody knows Lupus Nephritis is prone to relapse. Some of the patients would suffer from relapse once they are overworking or get infections. Additionally, preventing the relapse of LN contribute to a better prognosis for this disease. Chinese medicines can be used when steroids are reduced. Their immune system can be promoted by taking TCM.
