LUPUS: An Invisible Monster

This video was created to help people to understand the impact that lupus can have on those living with the disease. Lupus is an 'invisible' illness for most people, so we wanted to help make it visible for others.

Due to its many varied and often invisible symptoms, lupus can be very difficult to diagnose. It currently takes an average of 7.5 years from the onset of symptoms to diagnosis in the UK. It is also a disease which is very poorly understood by many and like other invisible illnesses it carries a stigma because of this. 

By raising awareness of lupus with this video we hope to reduce the time it takes to get a diagnosis and lower the frequency of discrimination experienced by patients.
