Lupus causes your immune system to attack healthy cells in different parts of your body. When your immune system attacks your kidneys, it is called lupus nephritis. If you have lupus, there is a 50% (1 in 2) chance that you will develop lupus nephritis. Symptoms of lupus nephritis can also look like symptoms of other diseases, so it is important that get your kidney function tested regularly to check for kidney damage.
