Hello all my friends
Let's come to the topic.Well I m a UCTD patient.In may 2005 I was diagonosed with SLE(Systemic Lupus Erithematosus).So many tests were done.The main was ANA that was +ve.I was suggested to take hydroxychloroquine sulphate 200mg twice daily with one pantoprazole tablet to avoid acidity and iron & calcium tablet.It was for 3 months.Then the doctor decrease the dosage of HCQS to once in a day.He suggested me to do the blood and urine test in every 3 months and to consult with him.Also there is a eye test in every year to be conducted to check the retina condition.The process was going on.

And my mistake ,I hadnt contacted the doctor for long 4 years.In january 2009 I suffered from fever and I went to that doctor.Again some tests were conducted and It was again diagonosed as UCTD(undifferenciated Connective Tissue Disease,also the doctor suggested to start steroids i.e omnacortil 10.But gradualyy the dosage was decreased from 10 to 5.Now I am continuing these medicines i.e steeroid 5 once,HCQS once and pantoprazole tablets with vitamins.But I got to know that only medicines are not sufficient.With that I need to do exercise,eat vegitables,fruits and so on.So please tell me whether this treatment is right or I need to consult more.And also suggest me how to take care of my hair(its becoming thiner),my skin (its becoming black and rashy),my weight as I am gaining weight.....
