What Is Lupus?

Lupus – chances are you’ve heard of it but don’t really know what it is. It only affects women – right? Wrong. It’s one of those diseases no one can really diagnose, right? Wrong. Lupus is an autoimmune disease that affects women, men, young, old, the healthy and the not-so-healthy. It’s in the same family as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis and it can be difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to live with. Join us on Monday with your questions about Lupus.

Regarding treatments, one drug that has worked well for me is Chloroquine, especially for lupus attacks on the skin.
