An estimated 1.5 million Americans, 90 percent of whom are women, suffer from lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease that can cause severe damage to major organs, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, and brain. Despite the prevalence of the disease, lupus is difficult to understand and diagnose, even for experienced physicians, due to its broad range of symptoms- from achy joints and arthritis to skin rashes and fatigue- which often mimic other diseases and go into long periods of remission.
In this revised and expanded edition of the preeminent book for patients with lupus, one of the country's leading experts on lupus and a renowned psychologist demystify the disease by providing the most up-to-date information on symptoms, detection, diagnosis, treatments, medication, and the psychological impact of the disease. Based on the authors' extensive research and clinical experience, this book answers the myriad questions of lupus patients and their families with authority and compassion.
