Other options: Most sle (lupus) can be controlled with the newer agents. So do consult a rheumatologist to go over these new options. Since uncontrolled sle can affect multiple organs, get a 2nd opinion from another rheumatologist if needed. Consider looking into the rheumatology department at a medical school closest to your home.See 1 more doctor answer

Many: There are many therapies for lupus. First of all it depends on what ype of lupus one has and how bad it is. Some patients need no treatment. We still use medications that have been around for years which include drugs like advil, (ibuprofen) Prednisone and drugs called dmards such as Plaquenil and methotrexate. There are a host of other medications also. Talk with your md.See 2 more doctor answers
No.: A novacure treatment is a newer technology used against certain types of cancers. Lupus is not cancer; rather, it is an autoimmune disease where your immune system attacks normal cells and forms antibody complexes, which in turn cause a whole host of problems including rashes, pain, joint problems, and kidney failure. Treatment of lupus is targeted against the faulty immune system.See 1 more doctor answer
Not likely: Why worry about 3 disorders, as you likely possess one unifying diagnosis to explain your problems. A good place to start is with an endocrinologist to deal with diabetes and the complications secondary to this. Focus on these issues, and later, if things seem peculiar look into co-morbities. Lastly, if you possess diabetes and lupus, doubt you have ms in addition.
Both my mom and aunt have been diagnosed with lupus, should I get checked for it as well? Since I know it’s hereditary
Rheumatologic issues: The specific diagnosis of lupus wouldn't run in families as much as the tendency towards rheumatologic conditions in general - that tendency runs in families - lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren's syndrome, scleroderma. Can find all of these in family lineages. Have a good history/physical exam/blood testing coordinated by Rheumatologist.See 1 more doctor answer

Genes, environment: This answer will change as we know more about lupus. We believe that for a person to get lupus, from the limited genetic information we have now, about 10% is from known genetic causes and remaining 90% unknown genetic causes and environmental causes. Environmental causes are largely undefined but important. Think about this: only 30% of identical twins develop lupus together.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Lupus in all its various presentations is treatable but it is not curable nor reversible. In some cases, lupus may go into remission but if it does go into remission, it does so on its own and does not go into remission as a result of treatment.
Somewhat hereditary?: Sle (lupus) is an auto-immune disorder in which a person's immune system is reacting strongly against parts of his own body. The inflammation from the immune system reaction leads to symptoms. It is believed to be partly genetic or familial (some people may be genetically more likely to get sle) and partly environmental (something happens in a person's life that sets off the auto-immune reaction).See 1 more doctor answer
Autoimmune disease: Lupus erythematosus is a chronic inflammatory disease of unknown cause. The immune system attacks the patient's own body (autoimmunity) and can inflame the skin, joints, kidneys, nervous system, lungs, mucous membranes, and other internal organs. A red rash is often but not always present. Thus, it was named lupus erythematosus meaning "red wolf.".See 1 more doctor answer
Multiple factors: The diagnosis of lupus is made based on a constellation of clinical and laboratory criteria. That is there are a number of pre-determined symptoms, physical signs (things a Dr. Sees when examining you), and findings on bloodwork. A minimum number of these must be present in order for the diagnosis to be made. So, you would need to have a physical exam and have blood work drawn.
