Lupus Nephritis

see also Lupus

Joint pain and swelling, skin rash, fatigue and fever are often the primary manifestations of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), but people with this autoimmune condition face a variety of health challenges that affect other organs, including the heart and lungs. Between 30-50% of those diagnosed with SLE develop kidney disease or lupus nephritis.

Symptoms and signs of lupus nephritis can include swelling or puffiness of the feet, legs and eyes; high protein levels in the urine; frothy or frequent urination; blood in the urine; and high blood pressure.
