Will Lupus Go Away?

Updated: Apr 18

When it comes to understanding lupus, a common question that often surfaces is: "Will lupus go away?"

Let's explore what living with lupus really means and the prospects of wellness on this journey.


Understanding Lupus:

Lupus is often likened to a rollercoaster ride—complete with ups and downs, twists and turns. At its core, lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease, where the immune system, in a case of mistaken identity, attacks the body's own tissues and organs. This can lead to inflammation and damage across various parts of the body, including joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood vessels, and the brain.





The Nature of Chronic Conditions:

To address the burning question: currently, lupus is considered a chronic condition, meaning it's long-lasting and, as of now, without a cure. But here's where the light shines through the clouds—living with lupus today is markedly different from what it was decades ago, thanks to leaps in medical science, treatment options, and supportive care.


Managing Lupus – A Ray of Hope:

  1. Treatment Advancements: The realm of lupus treatment has seen significant advancements. Today, a variety of medications can manage symptoms, reduce inflammation, and help maintain normal bodily functions. This includes anti-inflammatory drugs, antimalarial drugs that have proven effective for lupus, immunosuppressants, and biologics. The right treatment regimen can significantly improve quality of life.

  2. Lifestyle Considerations: Pairing medical treatment with lifestyle adjustments can really increase your quality of life and reduce symptoms like fatigue, pain, brain fog and more. Balanced nutrition, regular exercise, stress management, and sun protection are pillars that support a life well-lived with lupus. These changes can lead to periods of remission, where symptoms become minimal or even disappear.

  3. Hope on the Horizon: The field of lupus research is dynamic and ever evolving. Scientists are on a relentless quest for new treatments, with the ultimate goal of finding a cure. Clinical trials for innovative drugs and therapies are continually underway, painting a hopeful future for those with lupus.


While lupus may not "go away" in the conventional sense, the journey with lupus can be filled with resilience, adaptation, and hope. Many individuals with lupus lead fulfilling, active lives. I help clients every day change their diet and lifestyle to help them along this path!


So, will lupus go away? In the strictest sense, not yet. But with the right approach, you can minimize your symptoms so you can happily live your life!

With each step forward in research and each personal victory in managing the condition, we move closer to a future where lupus can be a smaller, manageable part of life.
