A chronic and complex autoimmune disease, lupus can affect the joints, skin, brain, lungs, kidneys, and blood vessels, causing widespread inflammation and tissue damage in the affected organ. The most common type of lupus is called Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), which affects many parts of the body. While anyone can get lupus, the disease most often affects women who make up about nine out of ten adults with the disease. It’s also more common in women of African American, Hispanic, Asian, and Native American descent.
Symptoms of people with SLE, the most common form of lupus, may experience fatigue, pain or swelling in joints, skin rashes, and fevers, with varying severity.
