4 Things People With Lupus Want To See In New Treatments (Infographic)

Posted on December 04, 2016

We surveyed MyLupusTeam members about what they hope to see in future lupus treatments. Answers fell largely into four categories. Members hope new treatments will reduce pain, have fewer side effects, decrease fatigue and sleeplessness, and prevent disease progression.

Treatment holds the elusive promise of reducing many of lupus' most difficult symptoms. Members told us that their lupus symptoms often made them unable to do everyday things and meant they were more likely to cancel plans and miss work. "Between pain, swollen joints and headaches it can make it almost impossible to function," one user said. Another user said, "I get tired when doing basic things like cleaning my house, folding clothes and going to work." Users hope for new lupus treatments which will alleviate the relentless pain, fatigue and sleeplessness of lupus.

Here's what you told us:
