Proteinuria 2+ and Lupus: What Does It ImplyAnswer: Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissue. About 60% of lupus patients have kidney damage more or less. Proteinuria is a typical symptom of kidney disease. Now she has 2+ protein in urine. It is very likely for your niece to have Lupus Nephritis. Besides proteinuria, does she have swelling, high blood pressure, hematuria, etc? She needs more tests to have a clear diagnosis.

Treatment for lupus patients with 2+ protein

Conventional treatment is to use steroids and immunosuppressants, which can suppress renal inflammation and reduce the permeability of blood capillaries so as to decrease protein leakage. But this is only stopgap measure. If you want to have a permanent control, you need to repair kidney damage and restore renal function as well as adjusting the abnormal immune system.

Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy. It has been practiced in Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital for years and proved to be effective. This is actually a systemic treatment, which is made up of double plasma exchange, oral Chinese medicine, external therapies, cell infusion therapy, cytokine infusion therapy, negative oxygen ion therapy, ozone therapy, micronutrient and vitamin supplements, etc. It can cleanse those immune complexes and other wastes from the blood. It can also alleviate renal inflammation and reduce kidney damage. And it also provides the kidneys with enough essential elements to speed up recovery. Moreover, it can improve immune system and reduce its attack to kidneys and other parts. After about one week’s treatment, swelling will vanish. After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria will decrease or even turn negative. After about one month’s treatment, lupus nephritis will be under control, and renal condition will get improved.

If you have lupus, once you detect that there is protein in urine, it means that your kidneys are damaged, and you should take treatment timely to prevent further kidney damage. For more information on Lupus Nephritis treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
