Lupus Nephritis Class 4: What Is It“My brother was diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis class 4, what is it? Could you tell me more information about it?” If this article, let’s have a quick look at this disease.

Lupus Nephritis can affect up to 60% of people with lupus. The World Health Organization has subdivided lupus nephritis into 6 stages. The classes represent different severity and require different treatment options. These classes are identified by a clinician examining the kidney biopsy with specialized microscopes and immunofluorescence.

Class 4 Lupus Nephritis is known as diffuse proliferative nephritis. About 40% of lupus nephritis cases are class 4, and it is also a very severe subtype.

How to judge whether you are lupus nephritis class 4?

More than 50% of the glomeruli are affected with active lesions. Immune complex deposits exist under the endothelial when viewed with an electron microscope. People will experience hematuria and proteinuria. Often, there will be hypertension, elevated serum creatinine, and raises anti-dsDNA titres.

Treatment for lupus nephritis class 4

It is commonly treated with corticosteroids and immunosuppressants. They can help suppress immune system and inhibit renal inflammation so as to prevent further kidney damage, but they can not repair kidney damage and promote renal function. Here we recommend you to try a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which is named as Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy.

This treatment can clear waste products including those immune complexes from the kidneys and blood. It can also regulate the anti-inflammatory and pro-inflammatory cytokines to relieve the inflammatory state of renal inherent cells and control the development of disease. Moreover, it can restore the cells’ self-healing ability and detoxification ability to stop the relapse of disease. After about one week’s treatment, you will see a lot of cotton-like substances in urine, which are those wastes being passed out. After about half month’s treatment, swelling will fade away. Proteinuria, hematuria, joint pain, skin rashes and so on will get relieved greatly. After about one month’s treatment, Lupus Nephritis will be under control, and renal function will be improved gradually.

Now you have a clear mind of Lupus Nephritis class 4. Kidney failure is common in class 4. If you do not want to go into kidney failure quickly, you should start treatment as early as possible. For more information on Lupus Nephritis class 4, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
