​​​​​​​Long-term complications of SLE

Recommended Posts

Long-term complications of SLE

Over time, SLE can damage or cause complications in systems throughout your body. Possible complications may include:

blood clots and inflammation of blood vessels or vasculitis
inflammation of the heart, or pericarditis
a heart attack
a stroke
memory changes
behavioral changes
seizures
inflammation of lung tissue and the lining of the lung, or pleuritis
kidney inflammation
decreased kidney function
kidney failure

SLE can have serious negative effects on your body during pregnancy. It can lead to pregnancy complications and even miscarriage. Talk with your doctor about ways to reduce the risk of complications.

What is the outlook for people with SLE?

SLE affects people differently. Treatments are most effective when you start them soon after symptoms develop and when your doctor tailors them to you. It’s important that you make an appointment with your doctor if you develop any symptoms that concern you.

Living with a chronic condition can be difficult. Talk to your doctor about support groups in your area. Working with a trained counselor or support group can help you reduce stress, maintain positive mental health, and manage your illness.
