  What Is Lupus Nephritis?

  Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is commonly called lupus. It’s a condition in which your immune system begins attacking different areas of your body.

  Lupus nephritis is one of the most serious complications of lupus. It occurs when SLE causes your immune system to attack your kidneys. Specifically, the parts of your kidney that filter your blood for waste products.

  The kidneys play a vital part in your body’s functioning. They remove waste from your blood. If they’re damaged, you can become very ill. People with damaged kidneys might have to get regular hemodialysis. This is a procedure in which your blood is cleaned by a filtration machine. People with lupus nephritis even need a kidney transplant.
