Our expert says:
SLE is an autoimmune disease and it does affect your organs in some or other way. One would not want to give a patient with organe failure another organ that could cause problems in future. However, you can probably donate coreas and skin and bone!
Due to medications used for lupus ( cortisone and immune suppressants) some people's blood would not be suitable, giving regular blood may worsen lupus and you may not be able physically to tolerate regular blood donations - so blood banks will not advise lupus patients to donate.
