Dr. Mackay explains that lupus is different than many other autoimmune diseases in that it can affect any part of the body instead of focusing on one part. She goes on to say that lupus is a condition that affects women much more than men, with women nine to 10 times more likely to contract the disease. The disease also tends to affect younger women in childbearing years.
