Articles About Lupus
On the Hospital for Special Surgery website, you will find extensive information about lupus.
You might be wondering about how lupus may affect specific parts of your body, including your heart and kidneys. Along with medications for lupus, you may be curious about acupuncture or complementary and alternative therapies for pain and their interactions with lupus. It’s important to understand the impact that lupus medications may have on your mood. If you are having difficulty coping with the stress of managing lupus, speak with your doctor and find support from families, friends, or the LANtern program.
