4. How is lupus diagnosed?
Because disease symptoms vary widely from patient to patient and symptoms can overlap with those of other diseases, lupus is difficult to diagnose.

If an individual experiences at least four of the eleven symptoms, a physician may diagnosis lupus. Doctors use several laboratory tests, physical examinations, and patient histories to make a more accurate diagnoses.
