EL DORADO, Ark. (KTVE/KARD) — On Saturday, the fifth annual Lupus walk returned to El Dorado. The walk brings survivors of the auto-immune disease together with their friends and family.
Lupus is an autoimmune disorder that can impact many parts of the body including the organs, hair and skin. Extreme fatigue, light sensitivity and higher susceptibility to infection are just some of the symptoms.
Ninety percent of those diagnosed with lupus are women. Women of color are diagnosed at a higher rate than their white counterparts.
