I was 19 when I was diagnosed with lupus but with some of my conditions and when my doctors found out about
my medical history and things that had gone wrong, they believe that I have had lupus since I was about
15 or 16. That is just a guess but it is so hard to tell because that was one of the things that they never thought to test me for in the past.
I hope everything works out with your grandson.
