Lupus Nephritis - What is it for

Lupus nephritis is an inflammation of the kidney caused by systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or commonly known as lupus), an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks its own cells. Lupus can also affect other parts of the body such as the skin, joints, blood, brain, heart and lungs.

Lupus nephritis can result in blood or protein in the urine and can lead to kidney dysfunction When the kidneys are not working well, waste and fluids are not removed from the blood, leading to accumulation of waste products, high blood pressure and fluid retention. Dialysis may be needed if the condition is left untreated.
