2. C3 / C4 examination, as well as other autoantibodies.

Treatment programs and principles

Lupus erythematosus caused immune damage on the kidney, mainly associated with immune complex formation, immune cells and cytokines and other immune abnormalities. Therefore, immunotherapy of hormones and immunosuppressive agents are essential.

In general, mild mesangial lesions of lupus, and mesangial proliferative lupus, with medium and small doses of hormone therapy. Immunosuppressive agents can be used when the effect of simple hormone therapy is not good.

Severe focal lupus, diffuse lupus, membranous lupus, you need large doses of immunosuppressive agents for induction therapy, at the end of the induction phase, maintained with small dose.

Reduce side effects

The current main effective treatment is immunosuppressive agents with plasma exchange, but easy to cause new damage to patients.

In particular, necrosis of the femoral head caused by hormones will bring great harm to lupus nephritis patients.

Because of the prevalence of inflammation, immunosuppressive agents are necessary, but can be used to reduce the side effects of traditional Chinese medicine.

Because inflammation is an immune response caused by the deposition of immune complexes, clearing immune complexes is the key. Plasma exchange has a good cleaning effect on immune complexes in the blood, but the effect is not obvious for immune complexes in the kidneys.

In addition to traditional Chinese medicine can help clean up immune complexes, but also can improve the body's immune system, reduce the immune suppressant on the physical damage.
