Links for Lupus

Lupus Foundation of America

This is the newly designed website for the LFA. Not necessarily user friendly, but a good place to start.

WomensHealth.gov

Lupus affects women and this site does it all. Check it out!

Yahoo Lupus Links

Yes, we must have the Yahoo list of Lupus sites here.  Just a list so Mr. S.  gives this web page only a 6.  It's fun to give a company like Yahoo only a 6.  What power!!

Arthritis Foundation

Quoted from the website: Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (sis-TEM-ick LOO-pus err-ah-theme-ahTOE-sus) is a chronic (long-lasting) rheumatic disease which affects joints, muscles and other parts of the body. Lupus involves inflammation (the immune system's response to kill foreign agents, virus, bacteria). Systemic lupus erythematosus involves chronic inflammation that can affect many parts of the body.

Dept. of Dermatology - University of Iowa College of Medicine

Discoid Lupus Erythematosus web page, including a photo that shows how Lupus can appear.  You can click on some other handy links to go to other photos on other sites such as the DermPath Tutor or the Dermatological Data Base for the University of Iowa.  Mr. Schneider rates this site a 6 only because there is no information to accompany the photos

KidsHealth.org

Good kids point of view here.

eMedicine Health

Good information, and quite in-depth. Enjoy!
