Men Have Lupus, Too
And face unique physical and emotional challenges...
You’ve probably heard the numbers—nine out of 10 people with lupus are female. But if you’re a man that has been diagnosed with lupus, the numbers don’t really matter. Your lupus is just as difficult to live with as a woman’s.
Like many men with lupus, you may struggle with the idea that you have a “woman’s disease.” But even though many more women than men develop lupus, your diagnosis has no connection to your manliness.
What it does mean is that lupus information valuable to you may be harder to find. This issue of The Cooperative Corner (a publication of the Lupus Cooperative of New York) is a good place to turn first!
