Symptoms of lupus may look similar to symptom associated with other medical conditions and vary a lot from patient to patient.
People with lupus often use treatments not approved for lupus, making it difficult to get them covered by insurance and to deal with their side effects.
There is no one test and no set criteria of signs and symptoms for lupus, placing diagnosis and treatment is far behind other autoimmune diseases.
Access to care is important for promoting and maintaining one’s health, as well as preventing or reducing long term disability from diseases, such as lupus.
