In brief: Varies

The symptomscan be skin only or systemic.
Cases can vary in severity and response to medication. Treatment needs to be individualized based on response to medication.

In brief: Depends on your SX

Sle can affect almost any organ in the body.
Many people live well with sle because the symptoms are minor. However, sle can cause inflammation in vital organs such as the kidneys or the brain. You need to establish a close relationship with a rheumatologist so that you can discuss your current and future symptoms with them. Monitor your bp, sugar, and cholesterol levels.
