As I said, DHEA has really helped me.
Ive been doing really well, then I used to be. My hair stopped falling out, thank god, and its growing again..
Im back at work, 4 hrs a day, and in another month, Ill be going full time.
My body really isnt bothering me much, and Ive had a lot of energy.
Im back on my plaquenil, and down to 10 mg of prednisone.
Ive got SLE, and unfortunately, I did start back smoking again. I had quit for 6 months...
but..I really do recommed DHEA. I really didnt think it would work, but it has. Its unreal. I only take 50 mg a day too. He wanted me to take 100, but I forgot, and just have been taking 1 pill. LOL
I have taken DHEA (75mg) for about 6 months now. It was just increased from 50 mg to 75mg because I keep flaring. My naturopatic MD insists it is essential as a SLE patient to take this. I take 50mg in the morning and 25mg at night. Has it helped? I don't know - I'm on so much stuff and have so many flares these days I couldn't tell you, but my faith in it lives on. I have read many things about DHEA and it seems to be essential no matter where you read about it. My Immunology MD and General MD both agree it is fine and good to take. Hope that helps.
