Product description

Review

"This excellent work takes the most complicated of facts and readily explains them for the layperson. Lupus is not an easy disease for physician or layperson to fathom. Dr. Wallace's book will finally preclude the lists of questions patients ask."--Robert G. Lahita, M.D., Ph.D., College of Physicians & Surgeons of Columbia University"Wallace, who has the largest lupus clinical practice in the U.S., writes for the many lupus patients who do not understand their disease and are fearful of its debilitating symptoms. This book is highly relevant, since nearly one million people suffer from lupus in the U.S., more than from leukemia, multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, and muscular dystrophy combined."--Choice"Wallace thoroughly explains the body's immunological processes and the causes, diagnosis, management, manifestations, prognosis, and genetic risks of lupus."--Library Journal"The Lupus Book is absolutely fabulous!"--John H. Klippel, M.D., Clinical Director, National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases"Although designed as a guide for lupus patients and their families, this book is of benefit to health professionals as well...Readers gain valuable insight into what causes lupus, who gets the disease, how the body is affected and why, and how various agents such as anti-inflammatory agents and disease-modifying drugs are used in treatment.--Journal of Musculoskeletal Medicine"The book explains a complicated disease in easy-to-understand terms and is suited for the motivated patient wanting a concise, practical overview of their disease....Simplifies a complex and confusing disease for the general reader....It is a reliable and practical guide for the patient who has accepted his/her diagnosis and is ready to fight the disease.--The Journal of Rheumatology
