Hi tonyadull, thanks for your question. I am sure you will locate others on SteadyHealth who will share their experiences with lupus.

Diagnosing and treating lupus are often a team effort between the patient and several types of health care professionals. With research advances and a better understanding of lupus, the prognosis for people with lupus today is far brighter than it was even 20 years ago. It is possible to have lupus and remain active and involved with life, family, and work.

Lupus treatment plans are tailored to the individual's needs and may change over time. The main goals for treatment include prevent flare-ups, treating flares when they occur, and minimizing any organ damage and complications. Working closely with the doctor helps ensure that treatments for lupus are as successful as possible.

I trust you will find some valuable advice in this community and others will share their personal experiences and how-to's.
