The new issue of LN begins with the Lupus Living section, where we offer encouragement and support to everyone who plans to make a New Year resolution to stop smoking. We also share suggestions on how to avoid colds and the flu this winter, and why it’s important to talk to your doctor before you start taking any dietary or herbal supplements.
In the Wellness section, we have information about the benefits of three popular low-impact movement workouts—tai chi, Pilates, and yoga—and when and how to take your medications. Timing really can matter!
The cover feature is about learning to take control of life’s challenges rather than allowing those things to control you. It’s not always easy to do, but we believe you will see great improvements in your life when you embrace this philosophy.
Do you know how keep your health insurance, if you have to stop working, or how to get coverage, despite having lupus as a pre-existing condition? Our second feature offers an overview of three important safety nets you can really use.
Our third feature takes a look at the state of pediatric lupus research today, and why it is crucial to understand all the ways that lupus affects the lives of children and adolescents.
