    Lupus Awareness

    in Health

    October was formally known as Lupus Awareness month, however in recent years Lupus awareness has been moved to the month of May in an effort to incorporate it with others events and to increase attention and fundraising to support Lupus awareness. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). Chronic means that the signs and symptoms tend to last longer than six weeks and often for many years.

    In lupus, something goes wrong with your immune system, which is the part of the body that fights off viruses, bacteria, and germs. Lupus is a disease of flares where symptoms worsen and you feel ill or go into remissions where the symptoms improve.

    Chit Chat with B.Fly Discusses Being Informed about LUPUS with Racquel Dozier

    in Radio

    On This Episode of The Beautiful Butterfly Show we will we Discussing " Being Informed About LUPUS" with Special Guest Racquel Dozier.

     Lupus In Color was created in 2004 by Racquel Dozier to cater to the needs of men,women & children of all colors of the rainbow suffering or directly affected with Lupus. Based out of Henrico, Virginia, Lupus In Color is assisting lupus warriors throughout the Richmond, Virginia area and beyond. The main goal of Lupus In Color is to give positive hope to lupus warriors through love and encouragement, positive support and interactions and exemplary empowered awareness.

    The history of lupus begins in 1828 when the French dermatologist, Biett described the disease. For the next 45 years, studies of the disease showed nothing more than descriptions that emphasized skin changes. In the mid 1800’s, Pierre Cazenave was the first person to have a comprehensive description of lupus. The disease was named because of a wolf-bite shaped rash (the butterfly rash) that appears across the nose and cheeks of many lupus patients. “Lupus” is the Latin word for wolf.

    In 1873, a dermatologist named Kaposi noted that people with a history of lupus lesions also experienced problems in internal organs. Then in the 1890’s, a famous American physician, Sir William Osler, discovered that some patients had internal organ involvement but no history of lupus skin problems at all. In 1948, a finding by Dr. Malcolm Hargraves of the Mayo Clinic that showed that patients with SLE had a LE cell in their blood, allowed doctors to develop a simple blood test. This blood test, along with a medical history and family history of lupus was used to diagnose many more cases of lupus.have also increased our understanding of the disease.
