Lupus In Color
11th Annual Flight of the Butterflies
Spreading Lupus Awareness One Butterfly at a time
Let this butterfly flutter all over cyberspace!
May 28- Lupus Fact
People with lupus may experience symptoms typical of one or more other diseases. In these cases, a physician may use the term “overlap” to describe the illness. Common diseases that overlap with lupus:
- Autoimmune thyroid disease
- Celiac disease
- Myasthenia gravis
- Antiphospholipid syndrome
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Sjögren’s syndrome
There is no time limit on when a second (or even third) overlapping autoimmune disease may develop, although it is most likely to happen shortly after the first diagnosis.
This is your twenty-eighth Butterfly of Hope.
We need awareness! We need a cure!
Encourage everyone you know to let it FLY!
