Tonight, I’m a lupus sufferer. Do lupus suffer from disease?

1 Answer:

Hello Yurike,


Thank you for the question.

Lupus is an autoimmune disorder that attacks the body systemically. Autoimmune disorders themselves are defined as a condition in which the immune system mistakenly considers healthy body cells as a dangerous foreign object so that it is actually damaged. This condition can attack various organ systems. Clinical manifestations that arise in patients with lupus can differ depending on the severity and which organs are attacked.


True, people with lupus are more prone to infections, both because of the disease themselves, and because of the side effects of the medication they are undergoing. Not only that, if you suffer from lupus, then your risk for experiencing disorders in various organ systems, including joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, heart, lung, and even the brain will be higher. According to some literature, lupus also increases the risk of some cancers, pregnancy disorders, and bone cell death. However, not necessarily all diseases can be linked to lupus, right?


Unfortunately, you don't make it clear what you really mean. Therefore, we are not authorized to assess the potential association with the disease you are suffering from. To be clear, you better consult directly with your doctor or internist at the nearest health facility.


I hope this helps.
