Lupus is difficult to diagnose, hard to live with and challenging to treat. While lupus is disabling and potentially fatal, in many cases the most serious health effects from the disease can be managed through aggressive medical treatment and lifestyle changes.  www.lupusmidsouth.org

* An estimated 1.5 million Americans have Lupus       
* Although Lupus can affect men and women of all ages, 90% of individuals diagnosed with the disease are women
*  Most people will develop the disease between the ages of 15-44·
* Lupus is two to three times more prevalent among women of color — African American, Hispanics/Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islander 
* 20% percent of people with lupus will have a parent or sibling who already have lupus or may develop lupus
