I read that "House" has made a commitment to the LFA by mentioning Lupus on every episode. And they have to explain why or why it's not Lupus. It's supposed to get education and awareness out there in a way that only Dr. House can do. It's not supposed to be offensive. If you think about it Lupus hasn't gotten any tv time until House. And yes he can be offensive but millions watch and hopefully more people are looking up Lupus on the internet. I wish they would actually have a patient be diagnosed with Lupus. They mention it so often then they should eventually have someone with it. They could start with the person being look at for Cancer or something and then end up with a Lupus diagnosis.
