Lupus would have to be one of the

most misunderstood diseasesLupus Purple Ribbon

Apart from the fact that it appears to have genetic links, and can occur in clusters throughout family groups, there is not really a lot that is known about how to avoid getting Lupus.

Lupus is Difficult to Diagnose

Lupus is difficult to diagnose, because it shares many symptoms with many other illnesses and not everyone who suffers Lupus will present with the identical set of complaints.  Lupus seems to imitate some illnesses, such that until the full blown symptoms are obvious, then often Lupus can be missed as the initial diagnosis.

There is no cure for Lupus

With potentially serious side effects, and no known cure, this makes it one of the more mysterious illnesses that one can be diagnosed with, and also one of the hardest to treat.

There are many treatment options for Lupus

Fortunately, there are a wide range of treatments that can alleviate the symptoms of Lupus, so it is important that you seek medical attention, and deal with the effects of Lupus as quickly as possible.

Therefore, we want to present as many of the facts around lupus as we could find, and to present that information in as simple a format as possible.  And let’s get the facts out there so that everyone can understand what this terrible condition can mean, firstly to yourself, if you have been diagnosed with Lupus, and secondly, what it means to someone else who may be diagnosed with Lupus.

Just the facts about Lupus

We need to explain that we are not medically trained, and therefore cannot make a diagnosis for you – only your Doctor can do that.  But perhaps, if you find that you are confused around the circumstances and possibilities of being diagnosed with Lupus, then we can certainly help by providing as much factual information as possible, and presenting it in a simple to understand format.
