My Sister is suffering from SLE. She is 12 years old and her kidney organ is also affected. How long should we take the treatment [doctor have informed that we have to give high dosage medicines initially]. How many years does it take to settle and is there a treatment available now? Is there a NGO to support financially for this disease?

My sister is recently detected with LUPUS SLE , her age is around 31 years .Doctor told us that it will be a long treatment . But all of us are wondering how long it will be . Please tell me is there any chance of complete cure or if it is controlled then can the person live a normal life ??? Also is there any NGO in India for any help.

hey Mark,my name is Wendy and I was diagnosed with SLE when I was 16 years old. But before that,I went through a lot of suffering...pain,not knowing what was wrong nd I understand ur situation nd how U feel.There isn't much U can do about the pain other than learn how to manage it but most important,have a positive attitude,accept that U have it nd talk to those close to U to let them know how U feel as a support system is essential.But remember U are not alone nd have faith.
