SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease in which the immune system attacks the body. Depending on the body part affected, it can sometimes mean fatigue, sore joints, rash, stomach problems, hair loss and fever.
90 percent of those affected are women aged 15-45 years. The disease is individual, difficult to diagnose and manifests itself differently from person to person. Depression and anxiety are common in patients with SLE.
