Forms of Treatment
I have a very close and dear friend that was diagnosed with Lupus today. I`m searching on the internet for information on Lupus. Facts, treatments, cures, etc. anything to help my friend through this. Please, if you can give me any advice, websites, links, etc. to gain knowledge of Lupus. Thank you very much.
Lupus comes in many different forms - varying from very mild to more severe and aggressive disease that can affect many organ systems. African-Americans have a higher prevalence of kidney and more severe disease. I would recommend the following websites to get further info. - The Arthritis Foundation @ www.arthritis.org and The Lupus Foundation of America @ www.lupus.org.
