Start out slow and with medical permission. Try not to exercise too fast or unsupervised. These tips for using exercise to control lupus include:
- Take it slow and don’t start with aggressive exercise programs. You will burn out quickly and actually cause damage to the body. Exercise can prove to be a management tool for lupus so start out with exercise that feels comfortable, and gradually increase the level of intensity.

Prevent burning out or giving up on exercise entirely.
