In brief: Diet and exercise

The most common reasons sle pts die are: heart attacks and strokes, infections, and from sle itself.
Because treatment for sle has improved, we are now focused on reducing common and earlier cardiovascular death. Reduce traditional risk factors: hypertension, diabetes, smoking, and cholesterol. Diet and exercise are also important.
