Overlap: This could be from dermatomyositis, either overlapping with lupus or the sole disease present. As to why, that's just where they occur. Such trophism is an excellent, but to my knowledged, unanswered question. ...Read more

I have horizontal ridges on my finger nails and i'm being tested for lupus. Is that a sign of an autoimmune disease?

I have horizontal ridges on my finger nails and i'm being tested for lupus. Is that a sign of an autoimmune disease?

Probably not.: I've never seen lupus cause horizontal nail ridges, although i suppose it's possible. Certain medications can do it, as can diabetes and certain systemic diseases. If you're not on any medications, your doctor may wish to extend the workup to look for other internal causes, besides lupus. ...Read more

Is it safe to take b complex vitamin and a hair skin And nail vitamins with lupus and irregular heart beat?

Is it safe to take b complex vitamin and a hair skin And nail vitamins with lupus and irregular heart beat?

Yes, perfectly safe: The only vitamins that can be toxic are Vitamins A, D, E and B6. One has to take massive doses of A, D & E to become toxic. One should avoid more than 250 mg a day of B6 but the combined amount in your vits is likely well below that. I advise those with irregular heartbeats to take at 250-400 mg/day of Magnesium Taurate; your vits probably have little magnesium. Hawthorne extract may also help. ...Read more

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 ...Read more
