Sunlight one of the worst triggers for LUPUS
Hi there, new here and this caught my eye...I was diagnosed with Lupus in 1990..... and Sunlight, ultra violet light actually triggers lupus ...the sun on the skin is what starts ANA production with causes the body to go into overdrive...the problem with lupus is that the bodies defense mechanisms go into over drive with certain triggers and sunlight is one of them... Getting Vitamin D from a pill is a good way to get it or wear a 50-70 sun screen...
I was finally diagnosed after we had a pool put in ...because I was outside in the sun for hours... prior to that I had moderate sun exposure but it wasn't enough for my blood test to come back positive.
hope this help!

I have SLE and being on this diet for 2 weeks has given me significant improvement. It would great to hear from you!
