Stressed Woman Suffering From Lupus Atlanta

Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes your immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues within your body. Lupus causes inflammation that may affect some of your body systems such as your joints, kidneys, skin, blood cells, brain, lungs and heart.

According to the Mayo Clinic, the commons signs and symptoms of lupus will vary, and may include the following:

  1. Fever
  2. Fatigue
  3. Joint pain, stiffness and swelling
  4. Butterfly-shaped rash on your faces that covers your cheeks and bridge of the nose or rashes elsewhere on your body.
  5. Skin lesions
  6. Fingers and toes that turn white or blue when exposed to cold or during stressful periods.
  7. Shortness of breath
  8. Chest Pain
  9. Dry Eyes

If you have lupus, you should consider that maintaining a healthy diet is important and may help reduce your symptoms. The foods you eat cannot cause lupus, and they cannot cure it either. However, since lupus is an inflammatory disease, food that fights against inflammation may be able to help reduce or limit your symptoms.

Choose foods with anti-inflammatory properties such as fruits and vegetables. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (nuts, fish, and olive oil) help fight inflammation as well.

If you suffer from Lupus, contact our Atlanta Lupus Treatment Experts at Medical Dermatology Specialists today. We value a comprehensive approach to taking care of systematic diseases such as lupus and treating your skin disease at the source.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
