Lupus

Understanding Lupus

Lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus) is seen more commonly in women of childbearing age. Its presentation can be extremely variable involving almost every organ in the body. Inflammation is a hallmark. Patients can experience bruising, fevers, unexplained rashes, hair loss, difficulty taking a deep breath, and cold fingertips (Raynaud’s) among many other possible signs or symptoms. Treatment is designed at suppressing inflammation using specific medications. There are new recently approved medications for lupus which may improve longevity as well as the quality of life. Contact us to learn more about these medications.
