I am 48, mom of three teen girls. I have SLE and have had a total hysterectomy…thyroidectomy..endometriosis…mitral valve prolapse…gluten intolerance…chronic fatigue…rectocele and bladder repair…diverticulitis (repeatedly)…meniere’s disease….I am taking no meds for SLE. I am wondering if anyone can suggest supplements or certain foods you have found helpful in relieving symptoms.

Google Lupus and Vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with all 160 autoimmune conditions and especially with Lupus, researchers have found that they can often maintain Lupus in remission by maintaining high normal vitamin D levels. Ask your doctor to check. The vitamin D council website has information on optimal levels of vitamin D and how much to take. I don't have Lupus but I am a dietitian and work with autoimmune conditions including my own Hashis. I have found that food sensitivity testing helps reduce inflammation and symptoms. I use Mediator Release Testing in my practice. It's also called LEAP. If you're interested in finding more, you can google certified leap therapist and the name of your town and you'll find a dietitian that specializes in it more than likely.

Hi cempty123, wanted to make sure there was a good list from the ideas that came from other autoimmune moms. Just to caution, these are not from doctors but hope they make for good research. In case this helps others with similar issues, posting it here too!

- An amino acid, Lacetylcystine, 1.5 grams/day, prescribed by rheumatologist
- Juice plus vitamins, B12, flaxseed, vitamin D, and DHEA and feel great
- Vemma (loving the healthy, natural energy), it's full of vitamins, minerals, and aloe which is phenomenal for your stomach issues
- Sunrider Foods:) and a clean pure organic diet
- No red meat to helps digestion, no dairy for reduce inflammation, and kill the sugar and breads to help stop spikes in fatigue
- Isagenix
