What are the causes of Lupus
- Although doctors do not know exactly what causes lupus and other autoimmune diseases, most believe that lupus results from both genetic and environmental stimuli.
Some factors that may trigger the disease and the symptoms.
- Hormonal change: at puberty, after childbirth, during the menopause
- Stress – as a result of trauma
- Certain medication – after a prolonged course of medication
- Lupus is neither infectious nor contagious.
