Re: Lupus Information Resource
To read about lupus, your [B]LOCAL LIBRARY[/B] 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 [INDENT][LIST][*]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.) .[/LIST][/INDENT]And while these authors stand out for the amount of details they provide, there are certainly other helpful authors as well.
