Lupus manifests itself so differently in people. Its consequences can include heart attacks, strokes, seizures, kidney failure and death. There have been no new drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration specifically for lupus in more than 40 years. No one is safe from lupus; it affects men and women, although women are more likely to acquire the disease. It tends to strike the range of women of color more commonly.
