Topics: Lupus Nephritis Symptoms Lupus Nephritis

Details: I’m having fluid retention, and my urine output is less than usual. I am so scared, because I was diagnosed with SLE lupus. Please, help me.

Expert Answer

First of all, you should know lupus is one systemic disorder. If left alone, it will attack various organs such as kidneys, lung, heart, and so on easily. Generally speaking, fluid retention and decline of urine output are attributed to kidney problem. To get an exact diagnosis, you are suggested to do blood and urine test.

If kidneys are involved in Lupus, we call it Lupus Nephritis. As we know, kidneys are excretory organs that produces urine and removes extra fluid out of the body. Once kidneys are damaged by Lupus, they will lose their ability to remove extra fluid, waste products and toxins. As a result, excessive amount of fluid will collect in the body especially legs, feet, ankles, face, and so on.

According to the above analysis, we would like to recommend you to restrict your fluid and sodium intake, inhibit your lupus, and rescue impaired kidney cells actively.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is one therapy that can help remove immune complexes from the body, rebuild kidney filtering structure and regulate the internal environment, so your Lupus and kidney damage can be managed from the root.
