I have been browsing this forum, and in various places, I see mentioned a testing process for lupus, lupus labs, etc. What is the testing process?? What do you have to do, and what tests? Is it all blood work? How often? Can someone please explain to me what the "process" is? Thanks!! :)

Hi gisele,
This link http://www.lupus.org/education/articles/diagnosis.html
Is very informative.

Also The lupus canada website has a free ebook that has tons of info.

When I did my testing, the doc told me it was as much of ruling out everything else. Besides the explosive ANA numbers, that was my first indicator for the lead to Lupus.
