Signs and Symptoms of Lupus

May is Lupus Awareness Month. 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.

Last week was World Rotaract Week. Every year, Rotaractors and Rotarians around the world celebrate World Rotaract Week with various activities during the week of 13 March to commemorate the founding of the first club in 1968. It was a time for celebrating the success and importance of the Rotaract programme.
