Who all gets lupus?

Who all gets lupus?

Genes, environment: This answer will change as we know more about lupus. We believe that for a person to get lupus, from the limited genetic information we have now, about 10% is from known genetic causes and remaining 90% unknown genetic causes and environmental causes. Environmental causes are largely undefined but important. Think about this: only 30% of identical twins develop lupus together.

Is Lupus reversible?

No: Lupus in all its various presentations is treatable but it is not curable nor reversible. In some cases, lupus may go into remission but if it does go into remission, it does so on its own and does not go into remission as a result of treatment.

Is lupus hereditary?  

Somewhat hereditary?: Sle (lupus) is an auto-immune disorder in which a person's immune system is reacting strongly against parts of his own body. The inflammation from the immune system reaction leads to symptoms. It is believed to be partly genetic or familial (some people may be genetically more likely to get sle) and partly environmental (something happens in a person's life that sets off the auto-immune reaction).

Autoimmune disease: Lupus erythematosus is a chronic inflammatory disease of unknown cause. The immune system attacks the patient's own body (autoimmunity) and can inflame the skin, joints, kidneys, nervous system, lungs, mucous membranes, and other internal organs.

How is lupus diagnosed?

Multiple factors: The diagnosis of lupus is made based on a constellation of clinical and laboratory criteria. That is there are a number of pre-determined symptoms, physical signs (things a Dr. Sees when examining you), and findings on bloodwork. A minimum number of these must be present in order for the diagnosis to be made. So, you would need to have a physical exam and have blood work drawn.
