How Is Lupus Spread?

Answer

Lupus is not a contagious disease so it is generally not spread from one person to another person. Lupus can spread throughout the body when left unchecked. Many scientists believe that something in a person's genes makes them more likely to contract Lupus than other people. There might also be environmental factors that affect the chances of a person getting Lupus. Some people believe that the disease is caused by certain foods or medications or even chemicals.
