Vitamin D and Lupus
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Dorothy,

Well, fortunately for you and your daughter, most things that might help her you can do without your doctor's help anyway.

Your doctor hasn't helped her out much up to this point, and he's just not going to be able to help much more. There are very few 'traditional medicine' answers to Lupus, and so you're going to need to look elsewhere if you and your daughter want to actually get better.

It's always great to have the validation and help of your doctor when you are trying to get better, but it's not necessary and is actually a hindrance when you have a doctor that only wants to go by 'The Book' which is the recommendations from his governing agency.

So, YES- she MUST get a vitamin d level. That is not going to be the magic bullet that 'fixes' her, but it could ABSOLUTELY help with pain and fatigue and improve her immune system. There is certainly enough evidence that vitamin d deficiency causes pain and fatigue that any doctor who won't get a vitamin d level based n those reasons is acting criminally.

So, if you want your doctor's help, you can ask him, or you can just get an In Home Vitamin D Blood Spot Test for the BOTH of you- yours isn't going to be any higher than hers!

Then, when she is severely deficient, you can come back here and let me know what it is and we'll take care of it because your doctor would just give you Prescription Vitamin D anyway- which is NOT recommended. So take a look at the Vitamin D Therapy page so that you know what to expect.

But if she's willing to get well, there is a LOT that she can do. First and most important is diet. There is a STRONG connection between Lupus and ....

Lupus and Vitamin D and Gluten Continued...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Gluten Sensitivity, and if you take a look at the Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance page, there is a little study that I've linked to called Gluten Sensitivity Masquerading as Lupus where the researchers tracked 3 women diagnosed with Lupus, but who were actually MISDIAGNOSED and simply had Gluten Sensitivity!!

They conclude that "Knowledge of the diverse manifestations of gluten sensitivity is essential in avoiding such misdiagnosis". But unfortunately, there is little knowledge of this in the medical community who are terrible at Diagnosing Gluten Sensitivity.

Then concerned people like you looking for actual solutions to problems get vilified by your doctor who has no answers for you- but who still believes that his way is the only right way.

Your daughter CAN significantly improve, but she's an adult and she'll have to be willing to make some changes.

That's a lot to take in, so read and digest some of the information that I sent you to and let me know if you're interested in hearing more.
