This is thought to be due to low endogenous erythropoietin levels caused by glomerular damage, tubulo-interstitial injury [more common in type two diabetes; Winkler et al. , 2001). Patients with diabetic nephropathy have an even higher risk of cardiovascular complications compared with ERF patients without diabetes. A study by Foley et al. (1996) clearly showed this when comparing the incidence of concentric LVH, ischaemic heart disease and cardiac failure in these two populations.

Some of the early presenting features of SLE can sometimes be vague such as fatigue, anaemia and swollen joints, which can lead to a delay in diagnosis or misdiagnosis of another disease. The most common symptoms that occur in SLE are altered haematology, with changes in the number of some of the major blood cells, swollen and often painful joints and altered appearance of the skin. Diagnosis of SLE is based on clinical history, using the 1997 American College of Rheumatology classification criteria for SLE when 4 of the 11 criteria are documented (American College of Rheumatology, 1999).

Other features of renal disease may also be present such as haematuria. Some of the forms of lupus GN show some features of nephrotic syndrome. The main features of nephrotic syndrome are gross proteinuria, hypoalbuminaemia, generalised oedema, hyperlipidaemia and lipiduria. The course of lupus GN is varied: some may remain stable whilst others with lupus may progress to more severe forms of lupus GN and thus to ERF which requires renal replacement therapy.
