Go Back

Posted on by

1. Do I have kidney or other organ involvement?

2. How active is my SLE presently?  Are my C3 C4 low and dsDNA high as these can be signs of active lupus?

3. Should I take calcium and Vitamin D supplements?

4.  I have heard lupus patients are at high risk for heart disease.  Do I need to have my cholesterol checked?

5.  I have heard a medication called Hydroxycholoroquine can reduce lupus flare.  Should I take this?

6.  Should I have a bone density test?
