Hello, the doctors told me I have "Lupus Protein Inhibitor". Does anyone know what this is and anything to look out for?

R Swamy Venuturupalli, MD, FACR replied to TLK2468's response:
They are probably referring to lupus anticoagulants, which are present in about 10-30% of lupus patients and can be associated with increased incidence of clotting. However, I am not sure that that is the case. Please clarify with the doctors. Best,
