Men Have Lupus Too


Men have lupus too. In general, men have been found to have more skin and kidney involvement than women. There is some evidence that kidney disease in men with lupus does not respond so well to treatment. Men need as much support as women, if not more, as it is not that easy to find other men with the same condition, and with whom they can share their struggles. #LupusInColor

    Thank you so much for sharing this I haven’t ever met another guy with lupus. And exactly what you said my doctor says that my lupus is aggressive but I have something that’s called mixed connective tissue disease which is a
    A collagen disease that is considered an overlap of three diseases, systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, and polymyositis with very high titers of circulating antinuclear antibody to a ribonucleoprotein antigen. My lupus is the most dominant out of the 3 so I just say lupus because it’s easier to explain. But since I haven’t had the chance to talk with other guys about I follow & rely on women’s blogs & support groups and it always comes up that they didn’t realize men could have lupus too. So thank you for sharing this
