Lupus is a disorder that affects more than a million Americans. Since Lupus symptoms can resemble those of other disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes, diagnosing lupus can be a difficult task, even for medical professionals. However, lupus will often display some unusual signs that can be useful in recognizing its existence.

Understanding Lupus
Lupus is related to a deficiency in the human immune system, which is important in protecting the body from viruses and bacterial infections. Although lupus can affect any age group, it is more common among women in the childbearing ages. It is also less common among Caucasians than other ethnic groups. Lupus in apparently not inherited and differs from cancer in that it does not spread to other organs. However, its symptoms can still last for years.

Numerous medications are used in treating lupus, including the home remedy aspirin. However, some authorities have prescribed dietary changes as an alternative to drugs.
