Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system confuses healthy cells with foreign substances, like viruses and bacteria, and attacks the body’s tissues and organs. According to the Lupus Foundation of America, the disease affects more than 1.5 million Americans and 5 million people worldwide. Around 90 percent of those diagnosed with lupus are women, and it is 2-3 times more prevalent in women of color, like African Americans, Asians, Hispanics and American Indians.
