What is the life expectancy for lupus patients? I was recently diagnosed with lupus. Does this mean I will die much earlier, or are there ways to live longer?

Everyone differs: Just because you have lupus does note mean a death sentence. Each person is different. It depends on your lupus and your treatment and how you respond. We will not live forever but how you do will help decide if you die from lupus or just die with lupus. Lupus alone is not a killer, but like any health problems some do better than others.
