"It's a rare form of lupus that's just attacking my kidneys."...

Canis Lupus?

sounds like it could be painful

I wonder if Nick's problem was adding too much spice to his kidneys?

This really does suck for the guy. I guess it hits a nerve for me because kidney and liver ailments freak me out.

i feel for the guy... i think the immune system may be one of the least understood components in our body... Its related to everything from cancer, to AIDs, to herpes outbreaks, to the common flu, to seasonal allergies...

To me, saying someone has an autoimmune disease, is just another way of saying your body is attacking itself and we don't know why. Give it a name like lupus or anything else,.. doesn't really matter. Its the same issue...

My dad has lupus. That shiat sucks.

Actually, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) does attack body organs and systems like the kidneys.

I will say that episode surprised me quite a bit.

It's not so much that it's not understood as that understanding doesn't really help all that much. I can understand that an asteroid is a bit of rock in an orbit with widely-spaced foci that sometimes intersects the orbit of the Earth, for instance, but that doesn't mean I'm going to reasonably be able to do anything about a large one falling on my house.

Lupus, specifically, I guess we don't know the triggers for, but the cause and details of how AIDS works are pretty well worked out, as are allergies and flu and intermittent viral disorders like herpes. It's just, again, knowing what's going on doesn't help a lot at the moment since we don't have the kind of tech needed to directly interfere (except in the case of AIDS, which actually generally doesn't kill you or bankrupt you nowadays) after the fact. I mean, extracting the viral components from herpes-infected flesh basically requires a retroviral treatment, which is a bit beyond what's stable enough to use on people.

Even once we work out the genetic triggers for Lupus, we're not going to be able to fix it so much as screen for it before birth and give the option of abortion when it pops up.

Is subby implying that lupus or related connective tissue disorders don't involve the kidneys?

/sigh. So much fail.

What? Please don't write things assuming authority when you have none. Spend some time actually learning about immunity, auto-immune disorders, and lupus before you write such nonsense. I'm willing to forward you some readings if you desire.

It's weird. I watched this season's Royal Pains and Tom Cavanagh played a character with a really aggressive lupus nephritis. He died at the end.

Lupus is a horrible disease. Just look at what it did to Lou Gehrig.

I think the worst part of the disease is how it ended Cal Ripken's streak.

My wife is a House fan.

She also has Lupus, Sjogren's and Rheumatoid Arthritis...had Cushing's...and so on

/with no irony, we watch to see if another one of her illnesses gets represented on an episode.

I just watched the episode last night where they discover the Lupus more advanced than previously thought, and his Kidneys are under attack. Thanks for spoiling the end jerk.

Sorry. But as it aired over 3 weeks ago, I think the spoiler-embargo is over.

yeah, fair enough, watched it 'cause my wife fell asleep and couldn't watch any of "our" shows. Royal Pains definitely falls under the "guilty pleasure" category.

Anyone that watches that show should be placed in a containment camp, isolated from the rest of society and subjected to medical experimentation for the duration of their existance.

Of course, that's just my personal opinion...
