Lupus is now recognized as an important illness of modern times. It is a disease in which the immune system goes 'wrong' and becomes overactive. It can affect any organ of the body. Because the symptoms can be so diverse, including for example; fatigue, rashes, allergies, depression and kidney failure it is called the 'great mimic'.
All ages can be affected, but the commonest sufferers are young females, especially those of African and Asian ancestry, the peak ages being between 18 and 45.
The outlook for most sufferers, given the correct treatment, has improved beyond recognition.
