Lupus is a long-term autoimmune disease. In autoimmune diseases, the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. This leads to long-term (chronic) inflammation.
The most common forms of Lupus are Discoid Lupus, Drug Induced Lupus, Neonatal Lupus and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (aka Lupus, LE or SLE).

What is Lupus Group Ireland
Lupus Group Ireland was established in November 2011 as a support and awareness network for people who suffer with the condition Lupus.
Lupus Group Ireland is the first support network of its kind for Lupus in Ireland. With Lupus the condition changes daily, one day can be a great day, the next can be a struggle to get dressed or even walk from one room to the other which is why such an interactive 24/7 support network is vital for a person suffering with Lupus.
