FACTS ABOUT LUPUS
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can affect various parts of the body. Lupus develops mostly in women between ages 15 and 44, but men, older people, and children can also have lupus. Normally our body’s immune system produces proteins called antibodies that protect the body from foreign invaders, such as viruses and bacteria. Autoimmune means your immune system cannot tell the difference between these invaders and your body’s own cells (“auto” means “self”) and creates autoantibodies that attack and damage healthy tissue. These autoantibodies cause inflammation, pain, and damage in various parts of the body.
