Hi, I started Cellcept this year after I had a reaction to my Benlysta infusions (was super depressing because it was actually helping).

Currently I have had five fillings at the gum line since my Lupus started to become active and I really hate that my gums seem to recede a bit because of the dry mouth. I drink plenty of water and try to avoid caffeine if my energy levels allow me to.
Anyway my question is have any of you tried oil pulling since your diagnosis? What are your… read more
I was just tested positive for the ANA SCREEN, IFA, W/REFL TITER AND PATTERN and my ANA pattern is homogeneous but my ANA Titer is low. It is 1:40. RBC is low. Hemoglobin is low. Hematocrit is low. I have severe joint pain, headaches, dizzy spells, sensitivity to the light, fatigue etc. Has anyone ever had a low antibody count and still got a diagnosis? I am being referred to a rheumatologist. Thanks
Has anyone found anything that helps with the hair loss? Mines definitely thinning and I feel like I'll be bald in 6 months at this rate. I've been taking Biotin 5000 and follow the recommended Lupus diet, stay away from alcohol, and if I'm out during the day I'm covered with SPF and wear long sleeves and a hat... but my hair still falls out like crazy :(
