What are some treatment options for SLE?
Because SLE is a chronic disease, there is no cure for the condition. The primary goal of treatment is to control inflammation, manage symptoms and prevent organ damage. This is done by suppressing the immune system to stop inflammation. Although there is no cure for SLE, early intervention can be greatly beneficial, helping patients function at a high level and lead relatively normal lives. While medications are the most common method for the management of SLE, TeleMed2U rheumatologists also offer integrative, holistic treatment approaches based upon a “S.E.N.S.E.” - ible approach: Stress management, Exercise, Nutrition, Sleep & positive social Engagements.
