When I found out I had lupus I was told to give up all caffeine, coffee being my drug (LOL), but I gave it up. Is decaf coffee ok to drink, I know it may contain small percent of caffeine. My question to drink or not to drink?? I'm caught in a dilemma.
Give up caffeine???!!!! NEVER - they will have to pry my green Mountain Dew can from my cold dead hands!!
But seriously, I've never been told to give up caffeine due to lupus - of course I've been told to give it up for other health reasons....needless to say, I've never taken that advice! lol
Thanks for your Reply!
