WORLD LUPUS DAY - 10 MAY

S L E
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Lupus - probably the classic multi-system illness
90% of Lupus patients are female
No two Lupus patients are alike
Fatigue and joint/muscle pain are common
Patients may have few or many symptoms
Lupus is neither infectious nor contagious
Major organ damage (heart lung kidney liver brain) is quite possible
Lupus remains incurable
Early diagnosis can make a difference
(Source: Lupus - A GP Guide to Diagnosis
published by Lupus UK)

Light Sensitivity
Exposure to sunlight can result in a disease flare
Fluorescent lights are also a danger to Lupus patients
Energy saving lightbulbs - known as CFLs
(compact fluorescent lights)
can also result in disease flare.
More information from my earlier POST on this subject.
" ... someone you know may have Lupus ..."
Please sign the PETITON to the UK Parliament
by clicking on this word - PETITION
to ensure that Incandescent lightbulbs are not banned
in favour of low energy CFLs
