Lupus

Lupus Events

African American women bear the burden of lupus with 1 in every 537 women affected. The peak risk age for developing lupus among African American females is younger than for Caucasian women. A higher proportion of African American women experience severe or life-threatening complications of lupus, such as neurologic or kidney disease and end-stage renal disease. These African American women with lupus are less likely to have the support so needed to battle this autoimmune disease both physically and emotionally.
