Preventative Measures for Lupus NephritisHow to prevent Lupus Nephritis? In the following, we list some preventative measures. Hope they can help you fight against the disease.

1. Pay attention to drug toxicity

Some drugs are toxic enough to cause lupus erythematosus nephritis, so we must stay away from this risk factor. Drugs commonly associated with the occurrence of lupus erythematosus nephritis include hydrazine, procainamide, isoniazid, methyldopa, chlorpromazine and quinidine, especially the former two. It may be related to hydrazine, amine and sulfhydryl groups in drugs. Therefore, in order to prevent lupus erythematosus nephritis, we should pay attention to the possible toxicity of these drugs.

2. Actively treat viral infections

Viral infection is the source of many diseases, so we must pay attention to avoiding the induction of kidney diseases in our daily life. In recent years, experimental studies have found that viral infection may be related to the occurrence of lupus nephritis. Therefore, in the prevention of lupus nephritis, we should actively treat various viral infections. Especially for such "minor diseases" as upper respiratory tract virus infection, we must not take it lightly.

3. Avoid sun exposure

Usually more sunshine is good for health, but we need to understand that ultraviolet radiation can aggravate the condition of lupus erythematosus nephritis. Because ultraviolet radiation can transform DNA into thymine dimer, which can enhance antigenicity and promote the occurrence of lupus erythematosus nephritis. Therefore, we should avoid prolonged exposure to strong sunlight in our daily life, in order to reduce the damage caused by excessive ultraviolet radiation.

4. Bring lupus under control

Lupus is the cause of lupus nephritis. If you really want to prevent lupus nephritis, you should treat lupus well. In western medicine, steroids or immunosuppressants are often used to suppress immune system and prevent the abnormal immune system from attacking other body systems. But those medications have many side effects, which can lower the patients’ living quality. In Chinese medicine, you can use some therapies such as Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Navel Therapy, Acupuncture and so on to help you reinforce the effect, counteract the side effects of western medicine and prevent its relapse.
