I am a nursing student attending school in Reno, Nevada. I am writing a paper for my nursing theory class, and have chosen to write on Lupus. I found it very interesting reading through all of your posts. I have a couple of questions for anyone who feels like they can answer or even just provide their thoughts for me. I was wondering if Lupus in nurses is just a coralation between the patients he/she is taking or if it makes symptoms worse? Secondly, if Lupus is caused by abnormalities in the immune system (Lewis et al, 2004), does anyone know what those abnormalities are?
If anyone has any in put on this subjest please feel free to respond and I thank you in advance.
