About lupus

Back to the top

Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes pain and inflammation throughout the body. Autoimmune diseases occur when your immune system - the body’s natural defense system against infection and illness - mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. The effects of lupus vary from person to person. Symptoms of lupus may develop suddenly or slowly and may be mild or severe. For some, the symptoms of lupus are permanent, whereas others may experience temporary effects. Because of this, and because the effects of the disease are so similar to the effects of other conditions, lupus can be difficult to diagnose. The common signs and symptoms of lupus include:

  • Joint pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Stiffness
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Sensitivity to sunlight
  • Swelling in the joints, hands, or feet
  • Headaches
  • Chest pain or shortness of breath
  • Lesions on the skin or in the mouth
  • Dry eyes
  • Hair loss

Many people with lupus develop a butterfly-shaped rash that spreads across the cheeks and over the nose.

Lupus affects men, women, and children, but the disease is most commonly diagnosed in women between the ages of 15 and 45. It is also more prevalent among African American, Hispanic, and Asian American women than Caucasian women. The diagnosis process for lupus can be prolonged and difficult, as the symptoms above are associated with several other conditions such as arthritis or diabetes. Usually, doctors will perform a series of lab tests to determine whether or not your symptoms are being caused by the disease.

Lupus is a chronic condition that can affect your quality of life and damage your internal organs. While there is no cure for lupus, there are a number of treatment options that can help keep symptoms in remission (reduced) and manageable.

Treatment Options

Lupus is a life-long condition that has no cure. However, there are a number of treatment options that can help manage symptoms and minimize the damage that the disease does to the body. Below is a list of common treatments meant to improve your quality of life and reduce the effects of lupus. During your appointment, talk to your provider about the treatment plan that is right for you.
