The Link Between Nephritis and Lupus
Recently, the story of a kidney transplant to Selena Gomez made headlines in numerous newspapers and leading websites. Selena’s story of living with lupus had helped to raise awareness about it. In 2015, she revealed that she was suffering from lupus, and within two years everyone learned about her kidney failure. Her story not only raised awareness about lupus but also demonstrated that lupus can be life-threatening and that there has been very little progress made in finding the treatment of lupus. Her story created a kind of fear towards this disease and forced scientific community to pay more attention to this long-neglected medical condition (1).
