Unbelievable Facts You Need To Know About Lupus

Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disorder where the body’s immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissues. It results in symptoms such as inflammation, swelling, and damage to joints, skin, kidneys, blood, the heart, and lungs.  

This is the way it works. There is a protein called antibody that the immune system produces in order to protect and fight against antigens (which are foreign substance to the body) such as viruses and bacteria. Lupus will now make the immune system unable to recognize and differentiate between antigen and the normal healthy tissue in the body which makes the immune system direct antibodies against the healthy tissue causing swelling, pain, and tissue damage.

The effect of lupus can affect any part of the body such as joints, blood vessels, lungs, kidney and other internal organs.

Who Is Affected by Lupus?

Sex matters in the risk of developing lupus as this chronic autoimmune disorder affects 9 women for every 1 man. Individuals at an increased risk for lupus also include individuals of Asian or African descent, individuals at reproductive ages between the late teens to early 40s and has the highest prevalence in Italy, Martinique, Spain and the British African-Caribbean population. (22)

Researchers hypothesize that factors which trigger the worsening effects of lupus are predominantly characterized by women’s hormones like estrogen and hormonal fluctuations caused from stress and pregnancy affecting the immune system (15). Individuals with a family history of an autoimmune disease have an increased risk of developing the disorder.

Environmental risk factors include those with increased exposure to toxins and poor diets. For example, a diet high in processed foods increases the inflammatory state of the body, increasing risk for autoimmune complications such as food allergies and gastrointestinal disturbances.

Feeling Like Fall: 5 Ways to Stay Warm with Lupus in Cool Weather

1. Never go to bed col

  Nothing worse  l than getting into a freezing cold bed at night .  You should consider looking into a heated mattress pad that has multiple heat settings.

2. Purchase clothing that can be layered

When building your outfit, consider sweat-wicking, stretchy, and comfortable fabrics

3. Warm up through liquids

When the temperatures drop, drinking warm liquids throughout the day and staying hydrated is one of the quickest ways for me to warm up.

4. Invest in some heat packs

If you need another way to stay warm over the next few months, I highly recommended adding heat packs to your list. A variety of brands and sizes can be found on Amazon

5. Protect yourself from germ

This isn’t necessarily a “warming” tip, but it is something I do consistently when the weather gets cooler to help protect myself from nasty germs. I make a shot-like drink that contains fresh crushed garlic, lemon juice, aloe vera juice, grated ginger, and honey. I have found that drinking this on a regular basis has really helped my already battered immune system stay in check. Sometimes I even add a dash of cayenne pepper for a little extra kick!
