I know I've blogged about Vitamin D before (here, here, and here), but I thought this latest article (brought to my attention by the Alliance for Lupus Research) from the NY Daily News is a good one. I especially like the following excerpt - a take on Vitamin D that I haven't heard before. (And if I have heard it, it didn't sink in!)
"The hope is the Vitamin D doses stop or slow down the part of the body that can overactivate the immune system and trigger lupus troubles, which include joint pain, fatigue or fever. Or, as Cynthia Aranow, a rheumatologist leading a Vitamin trial explains, "Are there ways of lowering what drives lupus?""
Enjoy the article, and the weekend. Looks like many of us, including Despite Lupus headquarters are going to feel the effects of an earthquake and a hurricane within days of one another. Stay safe!
