Educating Yourself

Educating yourself with your condition as much as you can is especially important. If you can recognize symptoms early on, you can alert your doctor. Be sure to keep asking questions– don’t be afraid to be curious. The more you know, the more in-control you have with your condition.

Be sure your Lupus information research is from a valuable, scholarly-recognized source. Check out your local library for more resources!

Keep a Journal for Daily Activity!

Every lupus case is different. While your doctor can help you with you and your condition, you must remember that no one in the world has the same condition as you. Keeping a journal for your daily acitvity (mood, food log, sleep, etc) can help you keep record of anything strange symptoms.

In addition, keeping a journal is also helpful for understanding you flares and triggers. Recognizing any unusual patterns or responses to anything can help you better understand your condition

Maintain a Good Diet and Exercise

Your doctor will probably recommend you to eat certain foods. We strongly recommend you intake food that are high in salt, fat and sugar in moderation. Not only will this help you with your lupus symptoms, but you will have more energy overall.

Moderate exercise can be helpful for maintaining flares. Keeping your body active (to your level) has many benefits.
