    Facts About Lupus

    • Lupus is not contagious disease. It is not an STD. You cannot “catch” lupus from someone or “give” lupus to someone. Lupus is autoimmune disease, meaning it is a condition that arises from an abnormal immune response in the body, often leading to rashes, hair loss, and other symptoms. 

    • Lupus is not related to cancer. Cancer is a condition of malignant and abnormal tissue that grow rapidly and spread into surrounding tissues. Lupus is an autoimmune disease, as described above. However, some treatments for lupus may include immunosuppressant drugs that are also used in chemotherapy.

    • Lupus is not related to HIV (Human Immune Deficiency Virus) or AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). In HIV or AIDS the immune system is underactive; in lupus, the immune system is overactive.

    • Lupus can range from mild to life-threatening and should always be treated by a doctor. With good medical care, most people with lupus can lead a full life.
