Can Lupus Be Cured?
Good night doctor. Doctor, I am a clerk of my ade who has lupus. Ade I was sentenced by a doctor suffering from lupus last month. My doctor wants to ask, is there any chance that lupus can be cured? Then does lupus also cause rheumatic pain in all bones, is there a medicine to reduce the pain? Because I can’t bear to see ade I cry when the bones ache all the doctors.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also concerned about the conditions experienced by your sister. Lupus is a disease of inflammation in the long term caused by abnormalities of the immune system that attack ourselves. This condition can attack various organs of the body such as skin, joints, kidneys, brain, spinal cord, heart, and skin.
The cause of lupus is still not known with certainty, but among the factors assessed to trigger its emergence are:
Heredity or genetic
Hormones, especially estrogen
Environment, such as bacterial, viral, stress infections, sun exposure, smoking, and chemicals such as mercury and silica
Regarding your question, unfortunately because it is not yet known the exact cause of this condition, so far there has not been found a drug that can be used to actually cure lupus from the bodies of ODAPUS (People with Lupus).
But what you must understand yourself and also instill in the mindset of your younger sibling is, even though it cannot be cured, ODAPUS can still act as a normal person. There are cases of ODAPUS in Indonesia that have conquered various mountains and included everest despite the conditions, and many others. Lupus is not an obstacle for them. So even though it may take time to understand this condition, especially if you have just been diagnosed, understand that it does not mean that your younger sibling's future will be impeded. He can still behave like a normal person, but of course with adjustments such as taking regular medication, and limiting sun exposure.
As for rheumatic pain, this complaint can also arise as a result of lupus, and there are drugs that can be given to overcome it. It's just that, because this drug is a hard drug, you can't buy it without a doctor's prescription. Therefore, we recommend that you ask the doctor who diagnosed your sister with lupus. So, hopefully answering your question.
