May 13 Lupus Fact
The brain, The lungs, The kidneys, Lupus(systemic lupus erythematosus) can affect pretty much any part of the body, primarily heart, brain and kidneys, but also joints, skin, bone marrow, liver, muscles and others. It causes extreme pain and fatigue. If organs are affected, the illness is termed “severe”. When organs are not affected, the illness is termed “mild”. This can be misleading as the patient can still be in a lot of pain and extremely disabled. A better way to look at it would be organ-involvement or non-organ-involvement.
