Study Suggests that Lupus Patients Are At-Risk for Dementia

The need for more research

Experts have already stated that there is a need to keep searching what exactly is the ambiguous cause behind dementia cases being so popular among patients with SLE. There is also an early onset cognitive decline, which also needs to be evaluated when it comes to patients with lupus.

Studies related to this condition need to start with patients at a very young age. It is also important to raise the level of awareness among caregivers so they can seek for reversible causes that may contribute to the development of these adverse conditions.

It's also important to remember that people who are in constant contact with lupus patients are the first ones to detect the presence of symptoms related to problems like dementia.
