What are the preventive measures for lupus Nephritis
First, avoid sun exposure
It is common that ultraviolet radiation aggravates lupus nephritis. Because ultraviolet rays can transform DNA into thymine dimer, thus enhancing antigenicity and promoting systemic lupus erythematosus.
Second, actively treat viral infection
Recent experimental studies have found that the virus infection may be related to the occurrence of systemic lupus erythematosus. Therefore, we should treat viral infections in time. Especially for " minor diseases" such as upper respiratory tract virus infection, one must not treat them lightly. Because " the wind is the cause of a hundred diseases", many serious diseases are caused by colds and endanger people.
Third, pay attention to drug toxicity
Because medicines related to lupus erythematosus include hydralazine, procainamide, isoniazid, methyldopa, chlorpheniramine and quinidine, which were common with the former two. It may be related to hydrazine, amine and sulfhydryl groups in the drug. Therefore, for lupus patients with lupus genetic basis, attention should be paid to the possible toxicity of these drugs to lupus patients.
Fourth, attach importance to physical factors
Generally speaking, The incidence rate of close relatives of systemic lupus erythematosus is as high as 5 % to 12 %, and that of identical twins is as high as 69 %. Other autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid disease, dermatomyositis, scleroderma, xerosis and psoriasis are also high among relatives of lupus patients. The incidence rate of black and Asian descendants is higher than that of white people. All these indicate that lupus is influenced by genetic factors.
.. Knowing some knowledge about the prevention of lupus nephritis, everyone should pay attention to it and develop good living habits. If you suffer from lupus nephritis, you must go to a standard hospital for examination and treatment in time, because the disease is easy to be treated in the early stage.
