Consequence is letting men know about Lupus.
His knowledge about the autoimmune disease didn't go beyond its impact on women until he was diagnosed.
Consequence says the hardest part about being diagnosed is his son thought he might have to say goodbye to his father.
Consequence is also diabetic and has been taking insulin for about 2 months. His weight went down to 105 pounds.
Lupus predominantly affects Black, Hispanic and Asian women between 15 and 45.
