          Learn About An Autoimmune Disease That Affects More Than A Million People In The United States


          November 8, 2018

          Lupus affects more than a million people in the United States. Singer, actress and author Toni Braxton was diagnosed 10 years ago. She joins Dr. Phil on Thursday’s episode, along with Pfizer’s chief medical officer Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall, to share information about the autoimmune disease.

          “If you have lupus, your immune system is attacking your healthy cells and tissues, and this can lead to damage in so many parts of the body, including, the lungs, the kidneys, the skin, the joints, the blood vessels, the brain,” Dr. Lewis-Hall says.

          Watch the video above for more information, including symptoms and ways to manage the disease.

          This episode airs Thursday. Watch more here.

          If you or someone you know has lupus, you can be part of the research that’s going on. Visit to find more information on lupus and about clinical trials.
