Re: Lupus Information Resource

To read about lupus, your LOCAL LIBRARY is a cost-effective place to start. Three authors, all noted rheumatologists, cover the subject comprehensively: Dr. Daniel Wallace, Dr. Robert Lahita, and Dr. Graham Hughes. They discuss
  • what lupus is (how the immune system is malfunctioning)
  • symptoms (constitutional, skin, and all major organ systems)
  • diagnostic criteria and tests
  • various unwanted autoantibodies seen in lupus
  • degrees (skin-only vs. systemic vs. drug-induced)
  • how lupus is distinguished from other conditions (like mixed connective tissue disease, undifferentiated connective tissue disease, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, systemic sclerosis, etc.)
  • treatments, including side effects
  • other conditions seen in conjunction with lupus (such as Sjogren's syndrome, antiphospholipid syndrome, etc.) .
And while these authors stand out for the amount of details they provide, there are certainly other helpful authors as well.
