Lupus Help!

I have just recently been diagnosed with SLE (Lupus). My kidney function is estimated to be around 20%. I just had a kidney biopsy on Tuesday, July 24th. Am waiting on results to determine what will happen next. Want to talk with someone who is in similar situation. I also have arthritis. AutoImmune diseases run rampant in my family. Any help/info/support will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Lupus Help!

Dear Spowell, Welcome! I'm sorry about your Dx but very glad you found this group. We're good company & I hope you find comfort & companionship in talking to everyone here.

I have lupus but haven't had kidney problems, so I hope others who have & know more about it will chip in soon.

If you're of the mind to read, there are some excellent hardcovers available in most libraries & bookstores: look for Dr. Daniel Wallace, or for Dr. Robert Lahita. Both cover all aspects of the disease, including treatments.

I hope your kidney biopsy results translate into a clear & quick plan of action. Please let us know how your followup appt. goes, OK? I hope you keep posting. Meanwhile, I send my best wishes to you. HANG IN THERE! Sincerely, Vee (Mucho arthritis, etc! I've done much better post-Dx and pray that you do, too!)
