Lupus is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disorder that affects the connective tissues of the body. Like most autoimmune disorders, Lupus is a condition where the body attacks its own healthy cells, which can result in damage to the skin, joints, heart, lungs, kidneys, blood vessels, and brain. Some symptoms of Lupus include fatigue, fever, skin rashes (such as a “butterfly rash” on the face), skin lesions, swollen or painful joints, gastrointestinal problems, pulmonary issues, and hair loss. Women are 8 times as likely as men to develop lupus, and 15 times as likely to develop it during the ages of 15-44.
