I am sorry if this sounds like a stupid question but Is the thyroid gland considered organ involvement?

Hmmmm..
good question....
IMHO, I believe it's considered an organ and if lupus affects organs then it's considered organ involvement.

Here is an article that was on the Lupus Foundation website I believe this should answer some of your questions on lupus affecting the thyroid.

Hope this helps you out.
