Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects about 16,000 people a year and is a major public health concern within the United States and around the world. Lupus has gone under the radar for too long, being mistakenly diagnosed as many other diseases because of the spectrum of symptoms that can occur. Many different antagonists can cause these symptoms, but researchers over the past decade have found that many triggers in our environment are linked to Lupus symptom flare-ups. This essay describes the symptoms and causes of Lupus as a way to better understand the direct connection between the environment and components on the disease.
