LUPUS-TLW-Fact 6 LUPUS-TLW-Fact 7

 

Although these facts show specific demographics, Lupus is also diagnosed in CHILDREN and MEN. It’s not AS common, but unfortunately, it does happen.  For a child or teen, it can be very difficult to be so different and limited from other healthy kids and not be able to participate in certain activities, etc. For men, it’s been said it’s tough to be diagnosed and live with a disease which is mostly considered a “female disease”,  which brings on issues on quiet a few different levels for them to deal with on top of dealing with the disease itself. Either way, for anyone dealing with Lupus, support is SO important… and of course, spreading of awareness and knowledge of the disease and how it affects those of us who have to live with it.. and eventually a cure.
