Treatment Options for Lupus
Lupus is a complex autoimmune condition with a wide variety of symptoms that can affect any part of the body. Diagnosing lupus can be difficult because it has many symptoms that are often mistaken for symptoms of other diseases.
Patients may develop skin problems such as redness, inflammation, itching, and pain. For a list of possible symptoms, click here.
Choosing the right doctor
A rheumatologist, a doctor who specializes in diseases of the joints and muscles, typically treats people with lupus. If lupus has caused damage to specific organs, you may also need to see other types of doctors.
For example, you may need to see a dermatologist for lupus that affects the skin, a cardiologist for heart disease, a nephrologist for kidney disease, a neurologist for brain and nervous system disease, or a gastroenterologist for gastrointestinal tract disease. If you are considering pregnancy, you may need to see an obstetrician who specializes in high-risk pregnancies.
