i have lupus nephritis (stage III) that is being treated (successfully) with cellcept (2,000mg/day). so far the cellcept has cut the protein in my urine in half. so it probably isn't even considered stage III anymore.

cellcept is wonderful...

no retinal problems that i know of...

Tasha hope that the meds will work for you. Thank you again for introducing yourself. This was the first time i ever had protien in my urine but it only said a trace so i did not hear anything from the doctor so i guess it is okay. You are 23, I have two grandchildren who are 21 and one 18 and one 5 and one 2. Bonita

You truly have inspired me as you have made it into grad school even with lupus nephritis class III. I have lupus nephritis class II and im in college now but taking a break because it flare up so bad that Im taking 60mg of prednisolone and 1000mg of cellcept. Im losing 7mg of protein in my urine now. Thank you!

I also have lupus nephritis. I also take cellcept. I have eye problems that originally stemmed from something different however, I have been told that my right eye will continue to be affected due to lupus. My lupus was actually diagnosed after I spent my summer in the hospital because they could not get rid of (what they thought was just) pilo nephritis. After 2 1/2 months of missing being on the lake in my roomates boat they finally got wise and start piecing things together!!

i'm glad i inspired you! fortunately, even though i had class III, i never experienced any noticeable symptoms from it and my kidney functioning was never affected. and now that the inflammation has gone down considerably thanks to the cellcept, i hopefully never will have symptoms!

the lupus symptoms that DO bother me are the joints and fatigue! ugh! :sleepy:
