Many lupus patients suffer from hair loss. Sometimes it’s very mild and unnoticeable but for some, it can be quite severe and cause considerable anguish. To help you prevent lupus hair loss, we’ve put together a list of tips using information from Daily Health.
Lupus or Medication?
Establish the reason for your hair loss. Is it lupus or could the hair loss be due to the medication you’re taking? If it’s medication-related, then speak to your doctor about changing medications.
Start Lupus Treatment as Soon as Possible
The sooner you start lupus treatment, the better and the less likely you are to suffer from hair loss. Speak to your doctors and push to get a diagnosis as quickly as possible if you suspect you have lupus.
Follow Your Medication Instructions
Ensure you always take your medication as directed, at the right time. Don’t skip your medication for any reason unless directed to do so by your doctor.
