Living with lupus

Some People Say

  • “Most people are unaware of this mysterious condition. People should know how hard it is to live with it. I was diagnosed with SLE some time back, and my life hasn't been the same since.”

  • “My mom was diagnosed with lupus nearly 15 years ago! Every day is a challenge! We have our ups and downs. Thanks LUPUS UK for the work that you do!”

  • “LUPUS UK have helped me so much in my continual battle with lupus.”

  • “Contact LUPUS UK first to find out about the condition from those that know the facts; Books and random internet sites can just confuse the issue.”
