Product Description

Review

Dr Wallace believes that this book is aimed at patients and their carers, as well as a very long list of allied health professionals...The book's popularity suggests that its aims have been met...The book is divided into five parts: Introductions and Definitions, Inflammation and Immunity, What causes Lupus?, Where and how can the body be affected by Lupus?, and The management of Lupus. I would recommend it to members of the allied health professions who are involved with Lupus patients. (Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Vol 88B, No 9)

About the Author

Daniel J. Wallace, M.D. is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA based at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. His many books include All About Fibromyalgia and All About Osteoarthritis (with Nancy Lane).

I have recommended this book to numerous people to help them understand their illness better. Dr. Wallace has written this book in terms that a lay person can understand, but never 'talks down' to the reader. This book is an excellent tool for arming oneself in being their own patient advocate. The information can allow you to converse with your heath care provider, working with them to achieve the best care for you. Having read many books about this disease which I have had for the last 10 years, I am pleased with the extensive coverage of the many symptoms and ways that lupus can manifest itself. A very helpful and useful book.

If you or someone close to you has been just diagnosed with Lupus and you feel confused, this book
will do much to clear up your confusion, and answer all those questions that are lingering in the back of your mind.
"The Lupus Book" is written in clear and easy to understand language and covers almost all areas related to Lupus including illness that Lupoids
tend to have. The categories are seperate and distinct, thus eliminating the confusion that sometimes prevails when reading a medical text.

When I was first disgnoised with Lupus I read everything that I could find. This book is the one that helped me to understand my illness. The Lupus Book answers all of your questions you may have about Lupus. It also help you to understand what you are going through now and what to look for in the future. It tells you about the test that you will be having and explain them to you as well. If you have gained weight(which most of us have)it will show you how to catulate your weight. I enjoyed this book and I am going to buy it so I can referre back to it when I have complications. At the present time I go to the library. It also has helped me to start writing my own book. I am looking for someone to read and publish my book. Is there anyway you may be able to help me? Please e-mail me mgoodwyn@erols.com Mary B. Goodwyn

I've got lupus. I buy every book and phamplet I can find. I never ever found anything so comprehensive as this book. Whether you're an expert or a novice, this book is for you - anyone can understand it. Finally something is on the market that digs deeper than generalities and provides the details you need to manage your illness, help identify your symptoms, and reassure you in ways few Doctors can. Its a SUPER BOOK!

Format: Hardcover
This book gives detailed but easily understood information on all aspects of Lupus. The only negatives I found were that the book is very much aimed at the American Lupus patient, some of the ideas & treatments having yet to be accepted in the UK. And also that the authour is somewhat dismissive of the emotional aspects of the disease. Although this is balanced out by the fact that he is open to many of the overlapping conditions, which I have never found in my encounters with UK Consultants. Still worth owning & great to refer back to as necessary.
