Lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus or SLE) is a chronic disease that can cause inflammation, pain, and tissue damage throughout the body. It is an auto-immune disorder whereby the body's immune system attacks the recipient and manifests itself in a myriad of ways. Lupus affects more than 2.5 million people. The cause for this tragic disease is yet unknown, and there is currently no cure. 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.
Lupus International focuses on support and education for those who have lupus and their families. Communication is the key to understanding the critical needs of lupus sufferers. People need to be aware that while people with this illness look fine, the ravage of their bodies, the difficulty in daily living, the coping with severe pain are very tough to live with. A cure is desperately needed.
