Not grown up yet, Tia, a girl from Subang has had a serious illness. Her conditions are quite alarming. Beginning with complaints of reddish patches, Tia went to the doctor to be examined. Then, it was discovered that this 15-year-old teenager had lupus nephritis. Lupus nephritis is inflammation of the kidneys that occurs as a result of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) or better known as lupus. Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks healthy tissues.
In addition to lupus nephritis, he also has overweight and hypokalemia. Hypokalemia is a condition when the level of potassium in the bloodstream is below the normal limit. If the potassium level is very low, which is less than 2.5 mmol / L, then it can be dangerous or even cause death if not treated immediately. Inflammation in her kidneys also makes the formation of active vitamin D in Tia's body is disrupted so that she might have osteoporosis.
Currently, Tia must take immunosuppressant medicine (which are suppressing the body's immune system) and drugs to prevent osteoporosis. The cost required is quite expensive for Tia's parents who work as farmers. Tia and family hope there is a way out so that Tia can get the medicines needed.
Let's help Tia's treatment!
If she get assistance, the donation will be given to purchase 90 tablets of Mycophenolate Mofetil and 30 tablets of Teorol which will be distributed gradually over 3 months.
