I Have A Question About Hair Thinning And What Helps To Help My Hair

I've only been diagnosed with Lupus, LN & RA. It's only been a few months and I've noticed that my hair is getting really thin around my forehead and temples. I take collagen and Biotin supplements. A daily multivitamin. I use castor oil in my shampoo. But my hair is still thinning.

Neuropsychiatric Lupus

Neuropsychiatric Lupus

Has anyone been diagnosed with this? If so, how were you diagnosed? Can you share your symptoms? I've been tracking my symptoms over the years and so many seem to have a neurological component. To me, it seems to be more than brain fog. I started seeing a neurologist again about a year ago and she sent me for a neuropsychiatric test, it's my third one.

I Have Microalbumin Creatinine Of 38.46.

I Have Microalbumin Creatinine Of 38.46.

I have been going to a rheumatologist for almost a year now. She has yet to give me a diagnosis. I just received routine blood work from my insurance labs.

My primary care doctor ran thyroid/ lupus panels a year ago. I had negative ANA but the other test showed probable lupus SLE. I am on Plaquneil 200 twice a day. Does the new blood work show a concern? Thank you so much.

I think 38.46 is quite high, i suggest that you galk to your rheumatologist and demand another blood test.
