Actress Kellie Martin On What It's Like to Be Powerless Over Lupus

Lupus: An invisible lupus

Just like what Kellie Martin had shared, it is difficult for doctors to detect and diagnose the symptoms of lupus at an early stage. This is because lupus has symptoms similar to other illnesses, such as high fever and painful and swollen joints, which can be mistaken for arthritis.

It is for this reason why proper awareness and education is needed. Moreover, because lupus is most likely to affect females (75 percent are women) and can be inherited through genes. Martin is also very careful with her 4-year-old daughter’s health, as well as her daughter’s sleeping and eating habits.
