can rheumatoid arthritis damage the kidneyQuestion: My sister in law is a 45 years old patient of rheumatoid arthritis. Yesterday, she told us she is diagnosed with kidney disease, so I’d like to know can rheumatoid arthritis damage the kidneys?

Answer: Can rheumatoid arthritis damage the kidney? As for this question, I am sure the answer is “Yes”. Rheumatoid arthritis indeed can cause damages on kidney if not controlled well, so people with rheumatoid arthritis need to be very careful about their kidney, and try to do kidney tests regularly, so as to avoid serious kidney problem.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that is especially common among female with age 40-60. It can result in a chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder that may affect many tissues and organs such as kidney. The most common kidney disorders associated with rheumatoid arthritis include membranous nephropathy, secondary amyloidosis, messangial proliferative glomerulonephritis, rheumatoid vasculitis and analgesic nephropathy and so on. Similar with other kinds of kidney problems, appearance of kidney disease caused by rheumatoid arthritis is also accompanied with proteinuria, swelling, high blood pressure and blood urine and so on.

Since rheumatoid arthritis can cause damages on kidney, they need to be especially careful about their kidneys and once their kidney is affected, an effective treatment should be given as quickly as possible; otherwise, they will run higher risk for kidney failure. Kidney failure is an illness that needs patients to do dialysis or kidney transplant to survive. Therefore, if they do not receive treatment as soon as possible, their life will be seriously threatened. For your sister in law, we suggest her to try Chinese medicines which not only help to improve kidney function and meanwhile cause no side effects. Therefore, they are more preferable compared with hormone and immunosuppressive agents.
