Management of Lupus
Rheumatologist (joints & autoimmune disease)
Treatment for lupus is very challenging and depends on your signs and symptoms because there will be periods of remission & periods of ‘flare-ups’. You need a careful discussion of the benefits and risks with your doctor as the treatment needs to customised specifically for you as your lupus behaviour may be different from other patients. Sometimes, your doctor may put you on low dose treatment (maintenance) to reduce the risk of ‘flare-ups’.
