About this product
- DescriptionThis title introduces lupus (also called systemic lupus erythematosus or SLE) through a series of real-life case studies. Lupus is a chronic disease that affects the immune system. It is estimated that 1.5 million Americans, and at least five million people worldwide, have some form of lupus. In people with lupus, the immune system attacks the body's healthy cells instead of protecting the body. This book discusses the different kinds of lupus and what they do to the body, as well as symptoms, treatments, the impact on loved ones, and how to live with the disease.
