Bruised horribly when I was on meds for Lupus. Now I'm human again, after finding an all natural product that turns on my own fight genes. Hang in there
Yep. Both. But usually lupus causes vitamin deficiency that will cause bruising to happen easier
Hey @A MyLupusTeam Member,
Yep, bruising is fairly common among we lupies. It is often a direct cause of having our antibodies destroy our blood platelets. Doctors call it thrombocytopenia. I have it.
Many of us are very low on vitamin D3. If your doctor hasn't checked that, they're not doing their job. Low vitamin D3 is easily treated with supplements, since sunlight is a No No for all we lupies. Your lupus symptoms and depression symptoms may benefit greatly from prescription-strength vitamin D3.
Here's a link to a great overview of lupus. Well worth a read, everyone.
Prednisone will definitely cause bruising
