Lupus is a pretty serious disease that can sometimes kill you if you do not get medical treatment for the Lupus.

However having lupus doesn't always mean a shorter life or mean that you'll die soon after diagnoses.

Many people have been living with the Lupus disease for as long as 40 years and even longer so it's not always a death sentence when you get Lupus as long as you get medical treatment in time for the Lupus and keep the treatment up.

The autoimmune disease Lupus is a chronic disease that can attack many parts of the body, including the skin, joints, and organs inside the body.

Some people experience only minor problems with Lupus while some people experience more severe problems with the Lupus.
