  Treatment Options for Lupus Nephritis

  

Treatment
There’s no cure for lupus nephritis. The goal of treatment is to keep the problem from getting worse. Stopping kidney damage early can prevent the need for a kidney transplant.

 

  Treatment can also provide relief from lupus symptoms.

  Common treatments include:

  minimizing your intake of protein and salt

  taking blood pressure medication

  using steroids to reduce swelling and inflammation

  taking medicines to suppress your immune system such as prednisone, which reduces immune system damage to the kidneys

  Extensive kidney damage may require additional treatment.
