Kim Kardashian has been in the limelight since she was just a little girl. She became famous after her first album “I’m Not Kidding” which was released in 2007. Her success started when she made a music video called “We Found Love”. The song was very popular and it helped her become one of the most successful female artists ever. Since then, she has continued to release albums every year and continues to have her own reality show called “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” on E! Network.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by an overproduction of interleukin (IL)-1 receptor antagonist (IR) T cells. These IL-1 receptors are located throughout the body and play a role in regulating immune responses against pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and protozoa. When these IL-1 receptors are activated they cause inflammation and damage to tissues.
People with lupus may experience flu-like symptoms, fatigue, joint pain, hair loss or eye problems. They may also develop other diseases such as cancer, heart disease and stroke.
Kardashian has had several surgeries to remove tumors from her face including a brain tumor in 2010. However, she still suffers from skin issues like psoriasis and eczema due to the surgery. She also uses anti-inflammatory drugs for her joints.
The rheumatoid arthritides (arthritis) are a group of diseases that involve swelling or pain and stiffness in joints. The word “rheumatoid” comes from the Greek word rhumatis meaning “joint.” Other words that come from this root are ophthalmological and otolaryngological, which mean “eye,” “ear,” “nose” and “throat.” About 1.3 million Americans have rheumatoid arthritis.
Kardashian’s “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” reality show has turned her into a household name. The show has been running for 12 years and shows no sign of stopping. It follows the social and professional life of the Kardashian family, which includes four sisters and their mother.
In addition to starring on the show herself, Kardashian is also a successful entrepreneur. She runs a clothing line called DASH and a perfume line called “Kim Kardashian.”
Lupus is a disease in which the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs. The disease can affect multiple parts of the body, including the skin, joints, blood, kidneys, heart and lungs. While the exact cause of lupus is unknown, it is believed to be caused by a combination of genetics and environment.
For example, women between the ages of 15 and 45 are most susceptible to the disease. Women of African, Asian and Caribbean descent are also at greater risk. Other risk factors include:
Lupus can go into remission (where symptoms improve or even disappear) for long periods of time, but it is a lifelong chronic illness. There is no cure. Treatments focus on alleviating the symptoms of the disease and improving the quality of life of people with lupus.
Symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain, skin rashes, chest pain and shortness of breath can be controlled to some degree. The main type of treatment is medication and many different types are used depending on the person and their symptoms. Other treatments include:
Kardashian was born in 1984 in Los Angeles, California. Her father was the infamous O.J.
Simpson, a former NFL star who was accused and acquitted of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, in 1994. Her mother is Kris Jenner, a former Olympic athlete and TV personality. She has four siblings: sisters Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian and brothers Rob and Brody Jenner. She’s married to hip hop artist Kanye West.
Kardashian has been in the public eye since 2007 when a home video of her was leaked to the public. The video became known as “1 Night in Paris” and showed a then-18-year-old Kardashian engaging in sexual activity with rapper Ray J. The video received widespread media attention.
In 2013 she was cast in the popular reality show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Since then, her fame has grown to the point that she’s considered one of the most influential women in America.
Kardashian presented Trump with a custom-made jersey during his visit to Los Angeles. The jersey is emblazoned with ” TRUMP” on the back and the No. 45 to honor his place as the 45th U.S.
“Hopefully, you’ll be celebrating an NBA championship soon,” said Kardashian.
The Lakers just acquired NBA All-Star Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans last week in exchange for a package that included Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, the Nos. 4, 47 and 40 picks in this year’s draft along with a future first-round selection and a pair of picks that include a pick swap in 2021.
“I think we got even better,” said LeBron James.
The Lakers are expected to feature a starting lineup of James at power forward, Davis at center, Kyle Kuzma and Luol Deng at the forward spots with either Rajon Rondo or Isaiah Thomas at point guard. The Lakers also acquired sniper Danny Green in a trade from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for their own first-round pick and Jakob Pöltl. Green will provide 3-point shooting off the bench.
“I feel great,” James said. “I’m ready to compete and I can’t wait.”
The Lakers made three straight NBA Finals appearances from 2008-10 when James was teamed up with All-Stars Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol. The team finished second in the Pacific Division at 47-35 before bowing out in the first round of the playoffs to the Oklahoma City Thunder four games to one.
“We’ve got a lot of talent, a lot of really good players,” James said. “It’s our job to just go out and just gel and develop that brotherhood.”
The Lakers open the regular season at home on Oct. 22 against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
