Just Beginning

I have just been diagnosed in March. Learning how to do everything I can to reduce my flare-ups and reactions is a new journey for me. Every day I experience something new in terms of advice. Sjogren's appears to be my type of Lupus. My Chloride and sodium levels are high and so I know I must reduce my salt intake to begin with, but I guess my rheumatologist will help me determine what my diet should be and how to avoid the severe skin rashes I am experiencing. I am also using Neutrogena sun screen both facial and body when I am going out. I am determined to make the most of my knowledge and be positive about everything.
