What causes Lupus?
No one knows what causes lupus. Research shows that genes play an important role, but genes alone do not determine which lupus will occur. It is likely that many factors trigger the disease.
There is no single test to diagnose lupus. It may take months or even years for your doctor to diagnose the disease. Your doctor may use several methods to diagnose:
*Full physical examination
*Samples from blood, skin or kidney for laboratory tests.
