Spreading Lupus Awareness One Butterfly at a time
Let this butterfly flutter all over cyberspace!
May 15th Lupus Fact
About 50% of people with lupus have antiphospholipid antibodies. Antiphospholipid antibodies interfere with the normal function of blood vessels and can lead to narrowing of the blood vessels or blood clots. These complications can lead to stroke, heart attack and miscarriage.
Antiphospholipid syndrome also called: APS, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome is a disorder in which the immune system mistakenly attacks normal proteins in the blood. Blood thinners (anticoagulants) are generally used to treat APS.
This is your fifteenth Butterfly of Hope.
We need awareness! We need a cure!
Encourage everyone you know to let it FLY!
