Have Lupus and Parkinson's and just found out I have a fatty liver is there a reverse on fixing it? If not how fast does it progress into failure?

Heterogenous.: Fatty liver is very difficult to predict but generally carries a pretty good prognosis - very very slowly progressive. Of course do need to prevent any other liver disease by restricting known toxins (alcohol and tylenol) and by getting vaccinated against hepatitis A and B.

I have lupus & now migraines are getting worse & starting to get tingling down r side. Mom has Parkinson's should I be concerned that I may have it?

No: Your symptoms do not sound like parkinson's. Migraine headaches in systemic lupus are very common. Not sure if you have tingling down right arm, leg, face? See a neurologist. It's likely that there is treatment to help your quality of life.

You are OK: With lupus and raynauds you might seriously consider not smoking of course. There are a few other things you can do to improve your odds and quality of life. Basic stuff like monitoring your disease activity, monitoring vit d levels and taking an antioxidant combo that makes sense. Exercise is important too.

Should I be worried with having Parkinson's and lupus I have heard pounding of like a heartbeat in my ears for a week and my nose bled a little?

Should I be worried with having Parkinson's and lupus I have heard pounding of like a heartbeat in my ears for a week and my nose bled a little?

No: Hearing " heart beat" in the ears is not a sign of pd or lupus. See your pcp to see he can also hear the pounding or heart beat in your ear.

Have lupus and now I am having tremors. Been told it's parkinsonism but could turn into Parkinson's is that true? Any idea how this effects my life?

Love the rumor mill: Saying that lupus tremors can become parkinson's disease is equivalent to people who talk about fat turning into muscle! It don't happen that way. Lupus is an autoimmune disease while pd is neurodegenerative. Doesn't mean you are protected from acquiring pd in the future but if you do be sure it was not due to the lupus.

Lupus and fatigue: Yes, lupus and parkinson's can both cause fatigue. You should continue with medical treatment, a healthy diet (fruits and vegetables) and try to practice good sleep hygiene. (sleep/wake at the same time, no caffeine after noon, exercise earlier in the day, cool, dark room for sleep).

CR 1.2 High WBC 11.3 High GFR 48. Low These are my latest and I am worried or should worry about Kidney failure since I have Lupus and Parkinson's?

Not yet: You have bit elevated creatinine, bit slow GFR, high WBCs could be secondary to drugs, steroids or NSAIDs, keep a close follow up with your doctor, ? will need nephrologist evaluation, revise the drugs you are on, their interactions and effects on kidneys, doctors usually try to balance risk/benefit ratio in chronic diseases, you might need more tests like p/c ratio in urine and/or imaging studies

Pure white toe nails w/ greenish yellow tint towards the top. I keep my toes clean & feet & don't let fungus build. I have lupus & Parkinson's? Issue?

Pure white toe nails w/ greenish yellow tint towards the top. I keep my toes clean & feet & don't let fungus build. I have lupus & Parkinson's? Issue?

White toe nail: The blood vessels under your nail in the nail bed is what gives your nails the pink color. The common cause of white nail is fungus or separation of the nail from the nail bed. Green/yellow discoloration is usually sign of an infection. I suggest you see a Podiatrist to have a fungal and bacterial culture done on the nail sample as well as to evaluate the nail to see if it is separated from bed
