Posted by:  
Category: Lupus

The cause of lupus is not known. It is likely that there is no single cause but a combination of genetic, environmental, and possibly hormonal factors that work together to cause the disease. There are Several Forms of Lupus.

  • Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) – The most serious type of lupus. SLE can affect many parts of the body including joints, skin, kidneys, lungs, heart, blood vessels, nervous system, blood, and brain.
  • Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) – Only affects the skin. It does not affect other organs, like SLE.
  • Drug-induced lupus – A reaction to some prescription medicines. The symptoms of this type of lupus are similar to SLE, except you don’t have problems with your kidneys or central nervous system.
