  • SLE is one type of lupus. The current treatment are anti-malaryan pills and prednisone. There is no cure for this, but they are treatment that can "help" with the symptoms.In the event of anti-malaryan treatment she will have to get her eyes check at least every 6 months.Her HCP will require her to undergo frequent blood test to check how active the disease is. Also, she will have to provide urine samples to see if there are any damages to the kidneys.Your mother will require a lot of support from her family, the disease along with the medicines will make her moody and depressed.Flare ups are un predectible, and there is no telling what causes it. It is recommended to have her stress free and rest as much as she can, but to also do soft impact exercises so she does not have muscle loss. It is most improtant to that she follows a healthy diet, along with intake of vitamins.The use of sunblock and staying out of the sun will help avoid skin rashes and may help avoid flare ups.I hope this helps you, and I wish your mother a good and prompt recovery.
