Living with Lupus and Pulmonary Hypertension

We continue Associated Disease Week with shining a light on lupus and pulmonary hypertension.

Robert Schilz, MD, of the University Hospitals of Cleveland says that 5 in 1000 lupus patients develop pulmonary hypertension. If you have lupus, take a look at this video to learn more from Dr. Schilz about lupus and pulmonary hypertension as well as two patients living with both diseases, Anna Bower and Veronica Elaine Lobato. Veronica shares that she was told to put her affairs in order, but she is still here 13 years later. "There is hope," she says.
