For myself, I prefer a natural diuretic (celery) plus plain water. Downside, you will be losing water constantly by urinating.

My ANA test came back as 1:160 with a speckled pattern, CRP level is high and I have a negative RF factor and normal CCP.

Benlysta Injections VS Benlysta Infusions Side Effects

Benlysta Injections VS Benlysta Infusions Side Effects

I did Benlysta infusions for over two years - they wipe me out by putting me in bed for 2 days and then weak for a week (exhaustion; achy like flu; migraine; fever; dizziness; weak).
