Lupus (systemic Lupus erythematosus or SLE) is a chronic disease that can cause inflammation, pain, and tissue damage throughout the body. Lupus is an autoimmune disease whereby the body’s immune system attacks the recipient and manifests itself in a myriad of ways. The cause for this tragic disease is yet unknown, and there is currently no cure. Treatment is limited to symptomatic control, and toxic side effects to medication are quite common. When a person develops serious lupus, they may have problems with their kidneys, heart, lungs, or blood cells. Lupus can be difficult to diagnose and can mimic other diseases. However, with early diagnosis and proper care there is hope. The key to a good prognosis is education, disease management and good team of medical professionals. Lupus International can help you put all the pieces of the puzzle together.
