Are you wondering whether what you eat can affect lupus? Be sure to read our article on “The ABCs of Nutrition.” While we do not have a specific lupus diet to offer you, there are definitely certain foods and vitamins you need to know about.
“Think Again” looks at the invisible changes caused when lupus affects the brain. These complications can affect your ability to retain, recall, and process information. In many instances, though, the coping strategies we offer can help you find your way.
Sometimes you have to just say ‘no’! In “Time Out” you will learn how to say, “No, I’m sorry, not today,” nicely but firmly. (We recommend you start with friends or family, who will be sympathetic, before you try this out on your boss!)
You also can read about some of the exciting lupus research taking place in the U.S., and around the world. This summary of lupus-related information presented at the 2009 meeting of the American College of Rheumatology appears in the Health Care Professionals section.
