hi helen and welcome...
i am another male with lupus, there are a few of us on here
everyone can react differently with lupus.
lupus generally attacks the organs.
and the biggest organ in our body is our skin .....
so it is common for lupus to attack that.
lupus can effect the lungs, it can also effect the sinus.
when the sinus is effected, it causes a secondary complaint in the throat and lungs.
(this happens to me)
the best thing for his irritable gut and bowel is a good balanced diet that is low in certain irritants.
one to look at is what is called the "fodmap" diet.
but please always seek medical advise before any radical dietary changes.
please look around the site ....
the past posts are our personal experiences with lupus.
and there is a good search feature here as well.
we have a few more senior members here, so your husband is not alone in this.
When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.
