From what i know there is no exact test or biopsy of anything that for sure says "Lupus". With this illness attacking every part of your body its about keeping on top of what the problems are and making sure they dont get worse. Its constant monitoring. Our bodies can (and usually do) show symptoms from head to toe. Thats why there are so many specialists involved along with your GP who is supposed to monitor it ALL. Unfortunately its a difficult illness that can kick in other illnesses on top of one another. Make sure your daughter is charting EVERYTHING and she needs to notice ANY change in her body even if its little because it can turn BIG quick I know this from my own experiences.
Good Luck and my heart goes out to you and your daughter.
We Live in a MORTAL, FRAIL, IMPERFECT world in which the word "FAIR" doesn't always apply.Make EVERY MOMENT COUNT with the ones you LOVE because it can end in the blink of an eye. Love, Jeannette
