Lupus nephritis is a severe complication of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), an autoimmune disease, where the immune system attacks healthy tissues, including the kidneys. In lupus nephritis, inflammation affects the kidneys, leading to kidney damage and impaired function. Symptoms may include blood in the urine, proteinuria (excess protein in the urine), high blood pressure, swelling (edema), and decreased kidney function. Management involves medications to suppress the immune system, control inflammation, and protect kidney function, alongside lifestyle modifications and close monitoring by healthcare professionals.
