How does hypertension occur among lupus nephritis patients?
For lupus nephritis patients, there will be a large amount of immune complexes that build up in their blood. However, due to damaged glomeruli, these wastes cannot be removed out of the body effectively. Then extra fluid and sodium in the blood will increase blood volume. Finally, patient’s blood pressure increases gradually.
Some supplements and herbs are good to take for patients.
1. Control fluid and sodium intake
To control blood pressure naturally, it is vital to limit your daily fluid intake and develop a low-sodium diet. Generally speaking, the daily salt intake should be less than 3g.
2. Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables
In daily life, some foods can help to eliminate extra fluid and reduce kidneys’ burden for patients, such as cucumber, cranberry, carrot, radish, bitter gourd and so on.
3. Remove immune complexes
From its underlying cause, we can know the key to treating Lupus Nephritis and hypertension is to remove immune complexes, repair impaired kidney cells and discharge extra fluid. Immunotherapy is well worth trying. On the one hand, western medicines and blood purification in the treatment can help set up a good blood environment, on the other hand, Chinese herbal medicines within the treatment can help repair kidney damage and improve renal function from the root. During this therapy, Herbal Medicine and blood purification methods are combined to work. When Lupus Nephritis is controlled very well, patients don’t need to worry any complication.
