Let’s discuss what is Lupus & what are the symptoms of it.
What is Lupus?
Lupus is an autoimmune disease. Lupus means that the body’s natural defence system (immune system) attacks healthy tissues instead of attacking only things like bacteria and viruses. This causes inflammation.
Although some people with lupus have only mild symptoms, the disease is lifelong or we can say its lifetime occurs and can become severe. But most people can control their symptoms and prevent severe damage to their organs. They do this by seeing their doctors often for checkups, getting enough rest and exercise, and taking medicines.
This topic focuses on systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), the most common and most serious type of lupus. But there are other types of lupus, such as discoid or cutaneous lupus, drug-induced systemic lupus, and neonatal lupus.
Lupus (SLE) can affect joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs.
Lupus Symptoms varies from person to person but most common symptoms include fatigue, joint pain, rash, and fever. These can periodically get worse (flare-up) and then improve.
While there’s no cure for lupus, current treatments focus on improving quality of life through controlling symptoms and minimizing flare-ups. This begins with lifestyle modifications, including sun protection and diet. Further disease management includes medication such as anti-inflammatories and steroids.
