In brief: Less likely

When i was in medical school, 25% of lupus patients died within 5 years of diagnosis and 75% eventually died from it.
It is far less likely to kill nowadays. Lupus is a particularly cruel disease, especially because you do not appear as sick to other people as you feel yourself. Be brave, and walk this hard road with your physician and friends as guide. Good luck.
