Hi, My boyfriend has lupus and after reading other peoples stories and information about the disease I have because very confused about flares.

atm my boyfriend is coming into a much better stage, the doctors said as far as the lupus goes it isn't active but he's protein still is not back up to a normal level so he is remaining on drugs like cellcept and predisilone. After a fast jump from 15 to 25 it has stopped moving, but progress is still being made as he is about to move down to 15mg of predicilone.

What I am wondering is once he is in remission what does this mean? We are so excited about being able to carry on wife life but how do flares work?

Does a flare mean that you are no longer in remisson and you go back up to high doseages of all those drugs or is it more of a warning sign?
