Is there a cure for lupus?  

No. There is no cure for lupus. A rheumatologist can treat a lupus patient's symptoms and help prevent flare-ups, by using a variety of medications to suppress the abnormal activities of the immune system. Lupus is an auto-immune disorder in which one's immune system is reacting with his own organs and tissues. With treatment, a patient hopes to go into remission, a period of time without symptoms.
