SLE is an autoimmune disorder which can involve multiple body organs and systems. Immune system is a protective system of our body and it can produce antibodies to fight against foreign harmful substances. However, in autoimmune disorder, the immune system fails to function normally. After the foreign substances are eliminated, the immune system still does not stop working. As a result, excessive antibodies will be produced. These antibodies can deposit in different parts of the body, leading to inflammation in different body parts.

The antibodies can deposit in kidneys, resulting in inflammation of kidneys. The inflammation may impair kidneys, resulting in progressive renal function decline.

Healthy kidneys can produce EPO, a kind of hormone which can stimulate the production of red blood cells. However, when lupus nephritis stage 3, the diseased kidneys fail to perform the function normally. As a result, less red blood cells are made, thus leading to anemia in lupus nephritis stage 3.
