About rouge
Hi, I am Elly
Living in Western Australia, enjoy the simple things in life. Having lupus, sjogrens, arthritis, coeliac, uveitis, vasculitis, iritis, many allergies, memory issues, ansomia etc... really puts alot into perspective.
I am here to connect with others for support and friendship.
I have tried several medications but gone back to plaquenil, and predisolone to control things, the body is not responding to it as it used to...rituxmab/mabthera was mentioned as a last resort for me (very reluctant to try it) my lupus ranges moderate to severe...i take 400mg of plaquenil and low to high doses of predisolone pending on flares...on a gluten free diet due to having also coeliacs for the past few years...
wa, australia
lupus awareness, art, AFL, coffee, shopping, family, travelling, health and nutrition, nature.

Reality hits home soon after and i feel so frusturated because i really want to have the brilliant ideia to somehow get the word out there in a massive way, and capture the attention of someone who is in a position to MAKE a huge difference to research funding, everybit helps no doubt,

I was recently recommended to have this treatment by my immunologist and was wondering if anyone with Mild to severe lupus as tried this treatment?

I am very concerned about the long term side affects...what can i expect?
