What is systemic lupus nephritis?

Q: I am 32 years old and suffering from systemic lupus nephritis. I am taking 10 mg prednisolone and azorqan 50 mg everyday. I underwent splenectomy 4 years back, misdiagnosed as ITP. What are the essential steps that I should take to restore my health? I am taking medicines for more than five years.

A:Systemic lupus nephritis is an autoimmune disorder in which the person loses the distinction of self and foreign antigens, and develops antibodies against its own tissues (self) and this leads to multisystem involvement. The exact cause of this disorder is not known and it is not a curable disorder; however the disorder / disease can be effectively controlled with drugs like prednisolone and azoran, which you are taking. Your doctor (rheumatologist / nephrologist) can guide you to monitor therapy.
