Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a complex illness known as “the great imitator” because its signs/symptoms can mimic so many other diseases. Diagnosis is often a convoluted and lengthy pathway with many patients suffering for years before learning their joint pain, GI symptoms, hair loss and multitude of other symptoms are indeed SLE.
