Lupus nephritis is inflammation of the kidney that is caused by systemic lupus erythematous (SLE). Also called lupus, SLE is an autoimmune disease where the immune system turns against the body, affecting vital organs. While the primary cause of the disease is unknown, it is expected that factors such as viruses, infections, pollutants, and toxic chemicals, along with family history plays a role in causing the disease. The disease is more common in women compared to men. Kidney damage from lupus erythematosus can vary from mild to severe. In lupus nephritis, glomeruli or the filtering units are damaged. As a result, waste from the blood does not get filtered. Lupus nephritis happens when lupus involves the kidneys. When the kidneys are inflamed, they cannot function normally and can leak protein. If not controlled, lupus nephritis can lead to kidney failure.
The treatment for Lupus Nephritis is based upon on its type, which is determined by the biopsy. Since, symptoms and severity vary from person to person, treatments are individually tailored to meet a person's particular circumstances.
