    Book details

The symptoms are puzzling, intermittent, and frequently seem unrelated: mysterious rashes, sore joints, fatigue, headaches. The disease is lupus, which, simply put, is what happens to the body when it becomes allergic to itself. It is quite widespread and it is highly deadly, claiming the lives of thousands of patients yearly. Now, with The Lupus Book in hand, lupus sufferers as well as their families, friends, and physicians have a reliable guide that will answer their questions and help them to better manage their day-to-day fight against this debilitating disease.

"This excellent work takes the most complicated of facts and readily explains them for the layperson. Lupus is not an easy disease for physician or layperson to fathom. Dr. Wallace's book will finally preclude the lists of questions patients ask."--Robert G. Lahita, M.D., Ph.D., College of Physicians & Surgeons of Columbia University"Wallace, who has the largest lupus clinical practice in the U.S., writes for the many lupus patients who do not understand their disease and are fearful of its debilitating symptoms. This book is highly relevant, since nearly one million people suffer from lupus in the U.S., more than from leukemia, multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, and muscular dystrophy combined."--Choice"Wallace thoroughly explains the body's immunological processes and the causes, diagnosis, management, manifestations, prognosis, and genetic risks of lupus."--Library Journal"The Lupus Book is absolutely fabulous!"--John H. Klippel, M.D., Clinical Director, National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases"Although designed as a guide for lupus patients and their families, this book is of benefit to health professionals as well...Readers gain valuable insight into what causes lupus, who gets the disease, how the body is affected and why, and how various agents such as anti-inflammatory agents and disease-modifying drugs are used in treatment.--Journal of Musculoskeletal Medicine"The book explains a complicated disease in easy-to-understand terms and is suited for the motivated patient wanting a concise, practical overview of their disease....Simplifies a complex and confusing disease for the general reader....It is a reliable and practical guide for the patient who has accepted his/her diagnosis and is ready to fight the disease.--The Journal of Rheumatology

    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.

    after reading Wallace, you need to read DeBartolo's "Lupus Underground." Wallace only covers the toxic drugs used today, DeBartolo keys in on a new drug-less cutting edge therapy.

    Everyone knows that diagnosis for this condition is far from easy. This cuts through the confusion and is hugely helpful
