: There are so many symptoms of lupus and it seems that everyone who has it has a different experience. Basically, it makes you tired. Your immune system attacks your own body (skin, lungs, kidneys, heart, etc.) There is a website that has information for those with lupus or friends and family of those with lupus. It's www.lupus.org. You should be able to find out just about anything you want to know there. Good Luck. Judy
Judy, lupus is a metabolic disorder caused by salt and or fat restriction. Restriction of these two nutrients will cause malabsorption and malnutrition which will eventually destroy all organ systems. Salt also provides iodine, so hypothyroidism is a common symtom when salt is restricted.
Millions of Americans suffer from this disorder which has many different names such as attention deficit disorder, Alzheimer's disease, anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, Gulf War Syndromem fibromyalgia, diabetes, panic disorder, bipolar depression etc.
After Public Health adopted the low salt, low fat policy in 1980, our airways became saturated with ads advising us to restrict salt and fat. This policy is followed at Senior Centers, retirement homes, school cafeterias, Meals on Wheels etc. Millions of Americans have already died because of this fraudulent advice.
Without delay, your mom's friend must resume salt and fat usage. If she has not suffered too much organ damage, she may make a full recovery. At any rate, she will begin to feel much better after she starts metabolizing her food.
