Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in various parts of the body.  The disease can range from mild to life-threatening.  Ninety percent of those diagnosed with lupus are females between the ages of 15 and 44, but lupus also occurs in males, children, and younger teens.  Lupus can be very hard to diagnose because symptoms vary from person to person, can come and go and can mimic symptoms of other illnesses.  It is important to know the symptoms of lupus and to know if you are at risk fir this disease.  Early diagnosis and proper medical care are the best ways to manage lupus.
