Ask Health Experts and Get Answers to Your Health Question ASAP
This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
how old are you?
do you have any results of your blood tests?
why do you need a bone marrow transplant?
lupus is not treated with bone marrow transplantation.
lupus is caused by your body's own immune system being too overactive and attacking your body's own cells.
immunosuppression can help improve your lupus symptoms
you should see a rheumatology specialist, these are the doctors who treat patients who have lupus.
you should see your primary care doctor and ask to get copies of your blood testing results
I would be happy to review them with you.
don't be discouraged.
when is your next appointment with your primary care doctor?
ask your doctor about lupus and if you need treatment for your lupus.
yes, lupus can be detected by specific blood test such as ANA anti nuclear antibody tests and other blood tests which can be expensive and rare.
symptoms like facial butterfly cheek rash and other symptoms can also point to lupus autoimmune disease as well.
good luck to you
