We would like to take a minute to talk about something very important that affects millions of lives – Lupus. A chronic autoimmune disease, Lupus affects at least 1.5 million Americans. There are 16,000 new cases per year, with this number only growing.
Sadly, there are many who are undiagnosed. Diagnosing Lupus is difficult because the symptoms can be similar to many different kinds of diseases, meaning a careful review of the symptoms must be made over time. This process can take years, and if left untreated the consequences can be life threatening.
