Do you Know the Signs and Symptoms of Lupus?

October is also Lupus Awareness month. Lupus is not easily diagnosed, so do you know the signs?

Many symptoms of Lupus mimic those of other illnesses and can come and go over time, making diagnosis difficult. For instance, Lupus is often misdiagnosed as Anaemia.

If you have any of the following Signs and Symptoms, see a Rheumatologist as soon as possible. Lupus can affect any organ system of the body, including the heart, kidneys, lungs, blood, joints and skin. So it is important to detect Lupus early.

It is Breast Cancer and Lupus Awareness Month, but Mental Health Awareness Month too. World Mental Health Day is observed across the world today. The day aims to raise awareness regarding Mental Health issues and to mobilise efforts to support Mental Health.

The theme this year is Suicide Prevention. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), almost every 40 seconds, someone takes their own life. So WHO has launched an awareness campaign, “40 seconds of action”. There is a large scale of suicide around the world and we can each play a role to help prevent it.
