WEB DESK: Singer Selena Gomes diffused rumors of going to rehab when she admitted being diagnosed with Lupus and going for chemotherapy as a treatment.
The Patients of Lupus can experience various issues, ranging from arthritis, rashes, extreme fatigue, body aches, fevers and low white blood cells. Additionally, younger patients often have more severe conditions than older ones.
While lupus sufferers may see some of the same side effects as cancer patients receiving chemo, including infertility, low white blood cell counts, nausea or diarrhea, most are less severe due to the loses and can be managed.
With careful treatment, lupus is considered a manageable disease. According to ETonline, In an effort to maintain privacy, and because she was in disbelief about her diagnosis, Gomez chose to keep her condition a secret. She took a break from music at the end of 2013, and in January 2014, checked herself into an Arizona rehab facility called The Meadows, citing the need to “spend some time on myself.”
