Hi Dale,

Lupus can affect any organ in our body. This is what I found for you.

Cardiovascular diseases. SLE damages the blood vessels, accelerates atherosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of the arteries) and can lead to stroke, heart attack or heart failure. A stroke is sometimes a symptom of SLE in an undiagnosed individual.
I found it here.

Being aware of what lupus can do is a good advantage. We then can know what to look for and yet not worry about the "what if's"

Take care,
Lyn
