I am so happy I stumbled on this forum!
Last monday my test results came back as positive for Lupus. Doc said that he can't diagnose until we do more tests which can take as long as years! Doc says it is definitely an auto immune disease and it is most likely lupus. I guess diagnosis can take as long as years? Although Doc swore me to staying off webmd I went on and every symptom list includes underweight or unexplained weight loss. I am the opposite. I gain weight being sick in bed over the weekend eating chicken broth and crackers. I have been steadily gaining for the past 8 years, it has been slow.
Has anyone had any success losing weight with weight watchers? I asked doc if there was any special diet I should start following and he did not have any suggestions. I eat pretty healthy, no fast food, alot of fresh fruits and veggies, low salt (supporting hubby with severe hypertension), whole grains and staying away from all the proccessed junk. I try to exercise regularly but most days after working an 8 hour shift and then getting kids homework help, dinner, dishes, ect. it is all i can do to get my body into bed before i go to sleep.
Has anyone found any type of suppliment that helps with the fatigue or pain?
Most importantly, anyone have success losing weight with this conditon or one like it?
