The Lupus Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the Lupus Foundation of America. It is intended to provide information on lupus and to help people with lupus find assistance paying for their medications.

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body. Autoimmune means the immune system cannot tell the difference between foreign invaders (viruses, bacteria and germs) and the body's healthy tissues. It creates autoantibodies (auto means "self") that attack and destroy the body's healthy tissue, causing inflammation, pain, and damage. Lupus is a disease of flares (the symptoms worsen and you feel ill) and remissions (the symptoms improve and you feel better). It can range from mild to life-threatening and strikes mostly women of childbearing age (15-44). However, men, children, and teenagers develop lupus, too. With good medical care, most people with lupus can lead a full life. The Lupus Foundation of America estimates that at least 1.5 million Americans have lupus. However, the actual number may be higher; there have been no large-scale studies to show the actual number of people in the U.S. living with lupus.
