    New to lupus

    I recently found out I had lupus. My bloodwork also showed positive for rheumatoid arthritis and hyperthyroid..id had fibro for 20 years. Does anyone else have 4 or more auto immune diseases to live with. I thought fibro was tough. How do you deal with several?

    RE: New to lupus

    My ex-SIL has RA and lupus. What helps her most is diet. A plant-based diet, specifically. I recommend watching Forks Over Knives and Heal on Netflix for information and inspiration. There are gobs of plant-based cookbooks in every cuisine, so once you’re past the first month it gets easier. Quitting dairy was a challenge for me, but there are so many substitutes available now, it’s not as hard as it once was. Cashew cheese was a pleasant surprise. You’ve been dealt a challenging path, but you can do it.
