Today May 10 is World Lupus Day, a chronic and autoimmune disease that mistakenly attacks healthy cells and tissues such as joints, skin, kidneys, lungs, blood vessels, brain and heart.
Although the causes of lupus are not known, according to the Mayo Clinic, anyone can suffer from it, but women are at greater risk and here we will tell you about some celebrities who suffer from this disease:
In 2019, the television star tested positive for lupus after undergoing an antibody test. Kardashian had previously revealed that she had been suffering from various symptoms related to arthritis for some time, one of the most common consequences of the disease caused by lupus.
“I’ve been feeling tired, nauseous and my hands are really swelling up. I feel like I’m literally falling apart,” she said during her television show “Keepin’ Up With The Kardashians.”
One of the most notable cases in the world of art and entertainment is that of the singer and actress Selena Gómez, who has been fighting Lupus for years.
This disease kept her away from the public sphere for a time, she even underwent a kidney transplant, which was donated to her by her best friend.
The singer Lady Gaga confessed in 2010 during an interview for CNN that she suffers from lupus erythematosus. This type is the most common. It can be mild or severe, and can affect many parts of the body.
In 2017 he had to cancel concerts due to complications with the disease and with fibromyalgia that he also suffers from.
The media El Universal said that Gaga’s lupus could be hereditary, since an aunt, Joe Germanotta, died of that disease at the age of 19.
Rapper Nick Cannon has the disease, which is why in 2014 he founded the Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now, a center for people with lupus.
The American singer was diagnosed in 2010. On several occasions the artist has had to stop her career due to the disease.
