How Long Can You Live With Lupus NephritisWhen people get certain kind of disease, what they concern most is the prognosis and life expectancy of the disease. Lupus Nephritis is an autoimmune disorder that is caused by SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus). How long can you live with Lupus Nephritis? I cannot give you a concrete number, because there are many factors that affects the patient’s lifespan. Read on, and you can get a general understanding.

Life expectancy of Lupus Nephritis

Lupus Nephritis is easy to relapse, and about 20% of the patients will progress into kidney failure, which is the main cause of death for people with SLE. According to research, more than 95% of the patients can live at least five years, and over 85% of those can live at least 10 years.

Factors that will affect the prognosis

1. Age and gender

Survey shows that young men have a higher risk of progressing into kidney failure.

2. Diagnosis

Early diagnosis is the key of prognosis. If patients are diagnoses with severe damage of many important organs, no treatment will be effective enough to reverse Lupus Nephritis.

3. Timely and effective treatment

It is the most important factor that can prolong the patients’ life spans to a large extent. How to choose steroids that are good for you, how long you should take medicines and what is the proper dosage you should take are all important things. The use of immunosuppressive agents has improved the prognosis of Lupus Nephritis. However, more than half of the patients died not from the kidney disease itself but malpractice of steroids. Therefore, you may as well try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. For more detailed information, you can talk with our online doctors.

4. Kidney function

How well the kidneys are functioning determine how effective the treatment is. Proteinuria is the most common symptoms and it will bring a bad prognosis of Lupus Nephritis.

5. Complications

Infection tied with kidney failure has been the first cause of death. Damage of liver and brain are the most commonly seen infections.

As for you own illness conditions, you can get some guidance related to diet, exercise, medicines or some natural remedies. The online consultation service is free. Please remember to leave your email address, or phone number so that we can contact you and help you!
