Lupus disease





Is a chronic inflammatory disease that arises when the body's immune system attacks the tissues of the body itself and its organs. The inflammation that causes lupus can originate in the body's various organs, including the kidneys, blood cells, heart, lungs and skin. Women are most susceptible to lupus. And here is no obvious medical reason to determine why.
It is difficult to diagnose lupus because the symptoms vary from one patient to another. Lupus symptoms may change over time as well, and in some cases may match the signs and symptoms of many other diseases. Therefore, doctors consider this diagnosis only when the signs and symptoms are more pronounced in the patient.

Even in cases where signs and symptoms are clear, lupus is difficult to diagnose because there are frequent changes in the degree of risk of lupus in almost all patients. Sometimes the disease worsens and sometimes disappears completely.

 Criteria set by the American College of Rheumatology for the diagnosis of lupus:

 The American College of Rheumatology has established a list of clinical and laboratory criteria that assist physicians in the diagnosis and classification of lupus. People who have four criteria out of 11 at the same time or appear separately one by one or can be combined in one may suffer mostly from lupus.

Symptoms of chronic lupus erythematosus:






Signs of this disease may appear suddenly or may develop slowly and gradually and different cases of lupus and each other and there are no similar cases of lupus. Symptoms may be minor, serious, temporary or permanent. Most lupus patients suffer from bouts of disease that last for varying periods of time, which develop and develop signs and symptoms and then return to improve and may disappear completely for a period. Signs and symptoms vary depending on the affected body.

The risk of lupus: -

Lupus is a disease of autoimmune diseases, that is, when the immune system attacks healthy body tissues instead of attacking foreign objects such as bacteria and viruses.
As a result, inflammation and damage to many parts and organs of the body, including joints, skin, kidneys, heart, brain, lungs and blood vessels
Doctors do not yet know the real cause of autoimmune diseases such as lupus and lupus is thought to be caused by the combination of genetic or genetic factors and environmental factors at the same time. Doctors believe that the susceptibility of lupus can be hereditary, but not the disease itself. People with genetic susceptibility to lupus may be exposed to exposure to an environmental agent that triggers lupus, such as certain drugs or other causes
