New Published Guidelines to Help Physicians Diagnose and Treat Lupus Kidney Disease
Date:5/4/2012

NEW YORK, May 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lupus Research Institute (LRI) applauds our colleagues at the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) for issuing new guidelines to help healthcare professionals screen, diagnose and treat lupus nephritis, a type of kidney disease associated with lupus. Available on the ACR website, the new guidelines are just published in the April 2012 issue of Arthritis Care & Research.

An estimated one third of people with lupus are affected by lupus nephritis – a serious consequence of lupus in which the immune system attacks the kidneys. While nine out of 10 people with lupus are women, men with the disease are more prone to lupus nephritis.

The kidneys keep the balance of fluids in the body at the right levels, taking out waste and extra water from the blood and sending these out of the body through urine. The kidneys also help to control hormone levels and the amount of pressure in the blood vessels. If lupus attacks the kidneys, these functions are impeded and harmful toxins can start to build up in the blood, causing serious damage.

Lupus Nephritis Guidelines Codify Diagnosis and Treatment

The 2012 lupus nephritis guidelines were formulated through a thorough review by three panels of researchers of the medical literature from 1966 through 2010 for all evidence pertaining to "lupus kidney disease".

"It has been over a decade since guidelines for treatment of lupus nephritis were published, and much has changed since with new immunosuppressive and antihypertensive drugs as well as new therapeutics that work directly to reduce loss of kidney function," commented Betty Diamond, MD, Chief, Autoimmune Disease Center, Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, North Shore-LIJ Health System and Advisor-at-Large of the LRI Scientific Advisory Board. "It is very important that physicians have
