Complex: Lupus is a complex autoimmune disease in which the body is attacking its own tissue. Lupus is famous for affecting different people in different ways. The effects can be so different from person to person that it does not even look like they have the same diagnosis. The diagnosis is best made by a rheumatologist who sees a lot of lupus patients.
