Talked to my brother yesterday evening for the first time in a few months and he told me that he's been diagnosed with LUPUS. =P~ He's 57, 10 years younger than I am and has been having health problems for about the last 10 years now. Turns out that most of those problems were Lupus related.

Information I've found on the internet suggest it can be treated but not cured and lots of people live "normal" lives with it. My brother seems to have a good mental attitude about it so hopefully that will help him cope with the symptoms.

Sorry to hear this Ken. I will say that they have made amazing advances in treatment for various inflammatory/ auto-immune diseases the past decade. I'm 48 now and was diagnosed with various forms of these issues (rheumatoid arthritis at 14 and ulcerative colitis at 26 that caused me to lose my entire colon at 30) After 20 years on various non-steroidal anti-inflammatory meds, including prednisone for many years, they started me on remicade infusions and they have been a fantastic treatment. My advice would be to find a good immunologist. Good luck to your brother.
