Lupus**
                                                  
Lupus is a disease of the immune system that can affect joints, skin, kidneys, blood and other parts of the body. In Lupus the immune system produces antibodies that attack the bodies own tissues. It is an inflammatory condition that can be chronic. Chronic means the condition is long lasting, which suggests that it could last for the rest of the patients life. Patients with Lupus experience changes with signs and symptoms at different times, known as flairs and remissions. A flair is a period when the disease becomes more active with increased symptoms. Remission is a period when there are few or no signs and symptoms of Lupus. Rarely a patient may have a complete remission, but this does not necessarily mean that the disease has permanently gone.
