For reasons not yet understood, the immune system in people with Lupus starts to attack and inflame healthy cells, tissue and organs. But little is known about what causes the disease, and no real cure exists.
And on Friday, Selena Gomez was spotted leaving her New York City apartment with her boyfriend The Weeknd. The 25-year-old calls the transplant “what I needed to do for my overall health”.
Selena Gomez on Thursday took to Instagram to inform her fans that she is receiving a kidney transplant. While hosting a screening for Good Time with director Josh Sadie and producer Sebastian Bear Mc-Clard on August 19, Gomez said that she discovered the filmmakers while watching one of their other movies while she was bedridden. She received a kidney transplant from the television actress Francia Raisa. Her friend Francia Raisa, who starred in “The Secret Life of the American Teenager“, rose to the challenge, offering her own kidney to save the pop star’s life.
This week, Gomez shocked the world by announcing that she underwent a kidney transplant over the summer. “I am incredibly blessed”. The symptoms can range from mild to life-threatening.
One fan wrote, ‘Get well you are so strong!
“It’s a disease of young women”, she said. I also wish all those who are striving for remission of a lupus flare or waiting for their match can have an experience such as ours. “In addition, smoking may be a trigger”. Systemic lupus erythematosus, however, harms the skin, joints, kidneys and brain and may be fatal, according to the National Kidney Foundation.
Some refer to this as “lupus fog,” which can include a variety of cognitive impairments, like feeling confused, forgetting things, trouble focusing, or difficulty expressing yourself. I am also inspired because there is more research being done and more resources out there to help people than ever before. Lupus is a complex and poorly understood condition that affects many parts of the body.
Lupus ranges from mild to severe.
The two have been friends for more than eight years, often posting Instagrams of each using the words “sister” or “hermana”.
Raisa, 29, said she considers Gomez family.
