Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body fails to distinguish foreign materials such as bacteria and viruses from its own cells, leading to the immune system attacking the body’s own cells and tissue. Lupus is a non-contagious disease that can affect various parts of the body, including joints, skin, kidneys, and blood.
