  18. I was diagnosed with lupus 4 years ago. It’s not contagious, more common in women than men, there’s no cure. It’s an autoimmune disease, that means your immune system can become over active and start to fight healthy cells in your body. It can effect the organs in the body, brain, heart, lungs, kidneys. When I was diagnosed my body was attacking my lungs, my last flare up it started attacking my kidneys. It’s a horrible disease, medication for life…. And you get a lot of joint pain very similar to arthritis, and fatigued very easily. x

    I was diagnosed in 1988 after almost dying. Please take moment to read this. It truly is a mysterious disease and difficult to diagnose and treat. Often the person doesn’t “look” sick but is feeling awful. Don’t just assume that a person is ok because they appear ok–they are often struggling

  20. Faye Cordero says:

    No, lupus is not contagious. It cannot be passed from one person to another. Lupus is an autoimmune disease, the cause of which is still unknown.

  27. It’s an autoimmune disease. Means your own immune system are targeting your own cells. We got few patients in Renal ward with this cases leads to renal failure to hemodialysis.
