The diagnosis of lupus nephritis


The diagnosis of lupus nephritis depends on blood tests, urinalysis, X-rays, ultrasound scans of the kidneys, and a kidney biopsy. On urinalysis, a nephritic picture is found and red blood cell casts, red blood cells and proteinuria is found. The World Health Organization has divided lupus nephritis into five stages based on the biopsy. This classification was defined in 1982 and revised in 1995.
Class I is minimal mesangial glomerulonephritis which is histologically normal on light microscopy but with mesangial deposits on electron microscopy. It constitutes about 5% of cases of lupus nephritis.Kidney failure is very rare in this form
Class II is based on a finding of mesangial proliferative lupus nephritis. This form typically responds completely to treatment with corticosteroids. It constitutes about 20% of cases. Kidney failure is rare in this form.
Class III is focal proliferative nephritis and often successfully responds to treatment with high doses of corticosteroids. It constitutes about 25% of cases. Kidney failure is uncommon in this form.
Class IV is diffuse proliferative nephritis. This form is mainly treated with corticosteroids and immunosuppressant drugs. It constitutes about 40% of cases. Kidney failure is common in this form.
Class V is membranous nephritis and is characterized by extreme edema and protein loss. It constitutes about 10% of cases. Kidney failure is uncommon in this form.

How to Increase Urine for Kidney Failure Patients?


The most basic function of our kidneys is to produce urine so that toxins can be expelled smoothly along with excretion of urine. However, for patients with Kidney Failure, how to increase urine become a difficulty issue. Fortunately, you will find out the available treatments for the condition.
How dangerous is oliguria for kidney failure patients?
In renal failure stage, patients have lost more than 85% renal function which cannot function effectively. Along with decline of renal function, patients are prone to suffer from oliguria. Then, more and more toxins cannot be expelled timely, which can cause further kidney damage, threatening life quality.
Well then, how to increase urine output for renal failure patients?
Actually, if kidneys stop producing urine totally, it is necessary to receive dialysis treatment which can replace parts of renal function to sustain patients’life. However, as a matter of fact, dialysis cannot increase urine output at all because it fails to repair kidney damage and improve renal function. Well then, how to do?
If you can come to Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, you will have more treatments that not only can help increase urine output but also can improve life quality. Here below are some unique therapies for your information.
Acupuncture: through stimulating the acupoints around kidneys, the related cells and nerves will secrete elements and produce responses to support the normal activities of kidney. Through stimulating the shenshu acupoint with the needle, many patients has increased their urine volume.
Medicated Bath: the medicines has diffusing function, with the increased blood, patients will urinate and sweat a lot, which is a good way to celan the toxins and wastes in blood.
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: It is an external application of Chinese herbal medicine. About 13-14 kinds of Chinese herbs are super-finely shattered. With osmosis device and penetrant liquid, the effective ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions directly. These ingredients have the function of dilating blood vessels, fighting against inflammation and degrading extracellular matrixes, thus increasing the whole blood circulation. Then, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to function well. As long as kidney function get well improvement, kidney will continue to produce urine.

There are many reasons leading to the foamy urine.
1) If the foamy urine is caused by recurrence of the kidney disease, the foam will last for a long time, more than 30 minutes. The more protein in the urine, the more foams and the more time lasting.
2) There is also a cause of urinary foams - liver problems. This bubble is very special. And they have yellow appearance and will last longer, which is mainly because of urine bile.
3) Diabetes can also lead to urine foams. If the sugar content is high in the urine, it is easy to breed bacteria, resulting in foams.
4)If there is bacterial infection in the urinary system, it may also lead to the changes of urolithic components. As a result, the urine tension will change. In this situation, there also will be a lot of foams.

【Phosphorous, itchy skin and dialysis.】

Can too much phosphorous cause itchy skin for patients on dialysis?
Yes. An excess of phosphorus in the blood can lead skin to feel itchy.
The excessive phosphorus can also pull calcium from the bones, causing fractures. Processed foods are usually high in phosphorus and they should be avoided. If the patients take the dialysis, they should work with a dietician to manage dietary intake of phosphorus.
There are medications called phosphate binders that may be prescribed to help absorb phosphorus from the food and make it pass through the body without being absorbed into the bloodstream.
If the patients are in the kidney failure stage, the condition is not easy to reverse.
The Renal Data System ranks the top causes of kidney failure as follows:
1. Diabetes (43.8% of new cases of kidney failure)
2.Other causes, combined (17.5%)
3. Glomerulonephritis (7.6%)
4. Cystic diseases (2.3%)
5. Urologic diseases (2.0%)
6. High blood pressure (26.8%)

Is Tomato Good to Eat if You Have Kidney Problem

Question: My mother has both diabetes and kidney disease, and she is using insulin for 10 years. Is tomato good to eat with kidney problem?
Answer: Tomato is one common vegetable in our daily life. Because it contains a lot of nutrients, patients would like to use tomato to do dish or salad. From your description, we can know your mother has diabetes and kidney disease.
In clinic, if patients have diabetics kidney disease, patients are more likely to have high blood pressure, swelling and proteinuria. If uncontrolled effectively, these symptoms will speed up the progression of diabetic kidney disease to a large extent.
Firstly, tomato has the property of lowering high blood pressure, because it is rich in potassium. Potassium is one mineral that can fight against the effect of sodium on affecting blood pressure. Hypertension often occurs with the onset of diabetic kidney disease, and good management of high blood pressure is one important part to treat Diabetic Nephropathy.
Vitamin C is one strong antioxidant that can help protect the remaining kidney functioning tissues from further damage, because it can remove free radicals from the body. This is why kidney disease patients are suggested to add some foods rich in vitamin C into their diet plan.
When kidneys fail to remove extra fluid, waste products and toxins from the body, the inner body system will be disturbed. In this case, harmful substances may catch the chance to attack the body, so patients with Diabetic Nephropathy may be at a high risk of infections. Tomato can just inhibit bacteria from entering into the body and prevent infections. Therefore, these patients can get benefits from this vegetable.
However, this doesn’t mean all kidney patients can eat tomato freely. To determine whether your mother can eat tomato, we need to know her potassium level and blood sugar level.

Creatinine is a breakdown product of creatine phosphate in muscle, and is usually produced at a fairly constant rate by the body (depending on muscle mass).



Serum creatinine (a blood measurement) is an important indicator of renal health because it is an easily measured byproduct of muscle metabolism that is excreted unchanged by the kidneys. Creatinine itself is produced via a biological system involving creatine, phosphocreatine (also known as creatine phosphate), and adenosine triphosphate (ATP, the body’s immediate energy supply).
Creatinine is removed from the blood chiefly by the kidneys, primarily by glomerular filtration, but also by proximal tubular secretion. Little or no tubular reabsorption of creatinine occurs. If the filtration in the kidney is deficient, creatinine blood levels rise. Therefore, creatinine levels in blood and urine may be used to calculate the creatinine clearance (CrCl), which correlates approximately with the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Blood creatinine levels may also be used alone to calculate the estimated GFR (eGFR).
The GFR is clinically important because it is a measurement of renal function. However, in cases of severe renal dysfunction, the CrCl rate will overestimate the GFR because hypersecretion of creatinine by the proximal tubules will account for a larger fraction of the total creatinine cleared. Ketoacids, cimetidine, and trimethoprim reduce creatinine tubular secretion and, therefore, increase the accuracy of the GFR estimate, in particular in severe renal dysfunction.
