May 28th Lupus Fact
While there’s no cure for lupus, current treatments focus on improving quality of life through controlling symptoms and minimizing flare-ups. This begins with lifestyle modifications, including sun protection and diet. Further disease management includes medications, such as anti-inflammatories and steroids.
Medications used to treat lupus can include:
Anti-inflammatories and over-the-counter pain relievers like aspirin or Tylenol.
Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatories (NSAIDs) like Ibuprofen or naproxen
Antimalarials like hydroxychloriquine
Immunosuppressives (Immune Modulators)
Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs)Like Benlysta
This is your twenty-eighth Butterfly of Hope.
