Lupus or Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a rare chronic autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body, most often the joints, skin, liver, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood, and brain.
“Autoimmunity” means your immune system cannot differentiate between foreign bodies (germs or infections) and your own body’s healthy tissues. As a result, the immune system attacks and destroys healthy tissues. Lupus can range from mild to life-threatening and should always be treated and continuously monitored by a doctor.
