Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can affect almost any part of the body, especially the skin, blood, joints, lungs and brain as well as kidneys. This article will tell you how digestive system is affected by lupus.

The digestive system is responsible for extracting nutrients from the food you eat and ridding your body of waste products. Lupus is able to affect the entire digestive system, starting from your mouth.

People with lupus are prone to have lesions on the inside of the cheeks, the lower lips, or the roof of the mouth. Your doctor may prescribe some medications to treat your lupus but it can increase your risk for oral lesions.

Some people with lupus take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). This can increase the risk of bleeding ulcers in the stomach lining or where the stomach meets the bile duct, pancreatic duct and small intestine.

Inflammation can cause fluid build up in the lining on the inside of the abdomen. Symptoms include abdominal pain, nausea, fever, and constipation. Lupus patients are at an increased risk for inflammation of the pancreas. Use of diuretics, immunosuppressants, or corticosterioids increases this risk.

Digestive symptoms include constipation, diarrhea, and nausea. These problems can be worsened by the use of corticosteroids or NSAIDs.
