In brief: 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.

In brief: Lupus can't be cured

There is no cure for lupus.
You can only minimize or control the symptoms. I find that most lupus patients do very well if you concentrate on a "toxin free" lifestyle (avoid sodas, sugar, alcohol, coffee; filter all water; wash all food carefully to remove pesticides et al. Increase water to 8 glasses per day; rebounding; supplementation with organic supplement. Check my website www.Medac4u.Com.
