“There is not a single diagnostic test for SLE.”
I had to find out this fact the hard way. Ugh, I hated the poking and prodding and giving tubes of my own blood away. But over the years, I have found out just how complex this disease is. And of course, it only makes sense for its diagnosis to take years. Get to KNOW LUPUS! Get to know what tests have to be done and what they mean.
