A body’s immune system doesn’t always work correctly. When it makes mistakes and turns the power of the immune system against itself, this is known as an autoimmune system. Lupus is one of these diseases. Instead of attacking exterior problems, Lupus instead attacks the healthy tissue within a body. Lupus affects far more women than men. Typically 9 out of every 10 cases occurs with females. Lupus can range in tenacity from a light issue to a serious lifelong disability.
The symptoms of lupus are particularly difficult to pick up. Diagnosing them can be difficult because the symptoms are so similar to symptoms of other issues.
