What Are the Complications of Lupus?
Lupus inflammation can affect vital bodily organs. This can lead to serious problems like kidney failure, anemia, increased bleeding, blood clotting, vasculitis, pleurisy, pneumonia, and pericarditis.
There can also be bone tissue death (avascular necrosis), miscarriage or high blood pressure during pregnancy (preeclampsia), and repeat infections if treatment drugs suppress the immune system. Lupus may even increase the risk of developing some types of cancer.
