Many individuals are suffering from kidney damage. This is a very huge problem and according to the health index, it is a great threat to mass extinction. Since our medical facilities are advancing day by day, so are the possibilities for new solutions. A new analysis reveals unexpected and useful insights into how kidney damage problem increases when it is highly exposed to sun and when skin is exposed to ultraviolet light it can worsen clinical symptoms. Many processes happen inside the body which can cause harm and symptoms in autoimmune diseases such as lupus. This study from researchers tells these things. It was done by the University of Washington and published in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Lupus is considered to be an autoimmune disease that can cause inflammation of the joints and different other parts like skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lung. There was a research that showed that up to 80% percent patient of lupus patient has both type of disease which is skin inflammation and systemic flares which also include kidney disease.

When an individual is exposed to sunlight it can trigger a lot of things that can be a root cause for other types of disease so it is suggested by doctors to individuals that they should avoid sunlight. This process is little understood by the researchers and the underlying mechanism that drive this process and this process is very harmful as well. Since the mechanism is pretty much complex, it is really very   difficult to define how UV light triggers kidney inflammation.

The research team investigated the problem and they wanted to know that why this happens, so they investigated the role of neutrophils which is a type of white blood cells and found abundantly in the body that perfectly acts as a first responder to any type of inflammation. This is the proof that it has been positively linked to skin and kidney tissue injury in a lupus patient. The treatment of this is tedious and expensive because it needs regular visits, proper intake of medicines and, routine therapy which uses a lot of capital of an individual.
