It is estimated that as many as 40 percent of all people with the autoimmune disease lupus, and as many as two-thirds of all children with lupus, will develop kidney complications that require medical evaluation and treatment.

March is National Kidney Month and the LFA is using the observance to call attention to this serious and potentially life-threatening complication of lupus.

Dr. James Tumlin is Director of the Southeast Renal Research Institute in Charlotte, NC, and Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, focusing upon clinical and translational research in renal disease.

SLESH (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Self-Help) Course

This seven-week program is free of charge and is designed to teach people with lupus how to take a more active part in their health care and live better with this chronic disease.

Each weekly session is facilitated by a team of trained volunteers and will include topics such as basic medical information about lupus, medications and treatments, exercise, doctor-patient communication, fatigue management and relaxation and stress management techniques. Pre-registration is required.

Classes will be held: Wednesdays, April 2 to May 14, 2008
