Simplifying Therapy for Systemic Lupus ErythematosusDiplomat Specialty Infusion Group supports patients throughout treatment.
Lupus refers to a variety of autoimmune conditions, which means the body attacks its own tissues. This causes swelling, inflammation, and damage to joints and organs.
The most common form of lupus is SLE, which affects about 2 million people in the United States. African Americans — particularly women — are diagnosed more often, but anyone can have SLE regardless of sex, age, or race.

What are the symptoms of lupus?
If you have lupus, you likely have joint inflammation, pain, and fatigue. You could also have hair loss, sensitivity to sunlight, skin rashes, mouth sores, and fever. Some people with lupus experience chest pain when they breathe deeply.
Lupus symptoms can go into remission, meaning that they seem to go away but eventually flare up again. You could have no symptoms one day and severe symptoms the next. This can make it difficult to plan or even leave the house.
