As for Lupus patients, the treatment is different according to different individual body condition and illness condition. However, no matter what kind of treatment is taken, the aim is the same that is to inactivate lupus factor and relieve the pain brought by this disease. The treatment for Lupus Nephritis should be based on patient’s clinical symptoms, library results and renal biopsy results. Traditionally, the following methods are commonly adopted during clinical treatment.As for patients with light SLE but with immunoserology abnormality, NSAID medicine can be taken to relieve the clinical symptoms if their urine test results is normal and glomeruli is normal or only have slight damage under biopsy results. In this case, glucocorticoid or cytotoxic agents is not commonly used, but regular and close observation on the illness condition is necessary. If the urine test results is not normal, and glomeruli focal segmental membrane proliferation as well as segmental necrosis and crescent can be found by renal biopsy, glucocorticoid in small or middle dosage can be taken and cytotoxic agents can also be taken rationally.For patients with serious SLE accompanied by acute nephritis syndrome or progressive nephritis syndrome, standard hormone treatment as well as CTX or Methylprednisolone should be taken if diffusive proliferative glomerulonephritis or crescentic glomerulonephritis, accompanying with kidney function progressive decline can be found. If the above method is not so effective, plasmapheresis should be considered. If acute renal failure or hear failure occur, dialysis is necessary for patients to save their life.
