Hello, my name is Dawn Isherwood and I am the Nurse Health Educator for the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA). Have you seen the Ask the Experts section of the lupus.org Website? In this section, you can submit questions to our panel of nationally-renowned lupus medical experts. We get a wide range of questions, from diagnoses to treatment options ... to how lupus affects the body to pregnancy ... to issues that are specific to men, women and children who are living with lupus. We also encourage family members of those living with lupus to submit questions.
While our panelists cannot respond to every question submitted, we do try to answer as many questions as possible. Typically, we select questions that may be of interest to a broad cross-section of people. These questions and answers are posted in the appropriate area on our archive. Questions of a highly personal nature will be answered individually, and will not appear on the LFA Website.
The Ask the Expert section receives several questions a day and the LFA attempts to answer questions as quickly as possible. Some questions may take longer to answer, as the experts who have been chosen to respond to the inquiry may not be readily available. So hang in there.
And remember, keep your questions coming!
