Hi and welcome to the community!

I encourage you to visit our Lupus Health Center where you can find information on symptoms, treatment options and living with lupus. It is a great place to stay up-to-date on new lupus findings and search through slideshows and videos for more lupus support.

I would also like to make you aware of our Day2Night tool which will give you great tips to at-home management of your lupus.

I hope these help, and I'm sure that you will get some more feedback from the community members!
