Learn the Symptoms
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease, which causes inflammation of various parts of the body, especially the skin, joints and kidneys. It may also affect the blood. The immune system normally protects the body against viruses, bacteria and other foreign invaders. In an autoimmune disease like lupus, the immune system loses its ability to tell the difference between foreign substances and its own cells and tissues. The immune system then makes antibodies directed against the body itself.
When lupus first sets in, symptoms such as fatigue and pain are often non-specific. They can be signs of so many other health problems, which can make diagnosis hard. The most common complaint people have is fatigue that is so severe it stops them from being able to function normally. This fatigue is often related to fibromyalgia. Fever, muscle and joint pain are also quite common.
This illness is frequently overlooked because so little is known about this disease. Unlike other chronic illnesses, it is hard to treat because no two people have the same symptom which calls for support for treatment and recovery.
We invite you to join us in our efforts. By working together, our joint efforts can promote lupus health care awareness, access and continue to increase health quality.
Purple is the color and a butterfly is the symbol for Lupus.
