Symptoms of lupus mimic common illnesses and can go into periods of remission, making diagnosis difficult. A Lupus Foundation of America survey of its members suggests that more than half of all people with lupus suffer four or more years and visit three or more doctors before obtaining a correct diagnosis of lupus.

The cause of lupus is unknown, though researchers believe lupus has a genetic basis and certain environmental influences can trigger disease activity in individuals predisposed to lupus. There is no cure for lupus, but medications are prescribed that can control the disease in most patients. Unfortunately, current therapies for lupus can be toxic, causing other health problems, and no new medicines have been approved specifically to treat lupus symptoms in more than thirty years. But new research offers hope that safer and more effective treatments will be made available in the not too distant future.

The Lupus Foundation of America Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter is an affiliate of the Lupus Foundation of America based in Washington, DC. The Lupus Foundation of America is the nation's leading nonprofit voluntary health organization dedicated to improving the diagnosis and treatment of lupus, supporting individuals and families affected by the disease, increasing awareness of lupus among health professionals and the public, and finding the cure. Locally, for more information about lupus or the Lupus Loop Run/Walk, visit the Lupus Foundation of Southeastern Pennsylvania's website at http://www.lupus-sepa.
