Hard to say/unknown,: Discoid lupus just involves the skin, not the rest of the body. However, a person might have low thyroid in addition to this disorder, or they might have a full case of lupus with skin lesions.

Low T cells may also be associated with immune deficiency as well. As for the episodes of not feeling well, it is not specific enough for us to offer you an opinion. ...Read more

They destroy tissues: Autoimmune disorders arise from an overactive immune system in which the body attacks its own tissues.

They serve no purpose, and even if there were some basis (for example, someone with advanced cancer "looks malignant" because of cachexia), the impression is less sensitive and less specific than a scientific exam. Life's difficult enough without well-intentioned lay people frightening folks for no reason. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
