7 Myths About Lupus that Need Debunking

People with Lupus Should Not Excercise

This myth is fairly controversial because it depends on the person’s physical condition and the progression of the disease. For some, exercise can help fight off fatigue; while with others, it might actually increase it. To take on a new exercise program, a patient would first have to consult with his or her doctor and closely observe any effects to make sure that the physical activity is not making the symptoms worse.

Another consideration to be mindful of is that some forms of exercising are not allowable. Nonetheless, some degree of getting up and walking around is also beneficial when not over exerting oneself.
