New site to check out - Medpedia.com!

When you get the chance, check out Medpedia.com...it's a medical wikipedia of sorts. They've listed some great information on lupus - SLE, lupus nephritis, lupus and osteoporosis - and tons of information about treatment, therapies, and the diagnoses of the disease.

In addition, you have the ability to pose a question on the site, and have it answered by one of the many medical professionals who have joined Medpedia. Of course, this is no substitute for discussing these issues with your own doctor, but it might be a good place to start if you're in between visits or just have a general question.

They've just added a new section called "News and Analysis", which collects and organizes posts from bloggers on a range of subjects related to the medical field. I'm proud to say that Despite Lupus has a few mentions, and they recently invited DL to be part of their community. Not sure if the direct feed is up there as of this morning, but feel free to poke around and see what you can find. There's a ton of good stuff!
