Lupus and Depression: It's Not Just Sadness

Getting enough sleep

Even in someone who is healthy, a lack of sleep can cause a number of serious health issues. Now, imagine that but with an underlying lupus diagnosis to further complicate matters. Those who suffer from lupus will vastly benefit from having healthy sleeping habits, such as resting for at least 7 hours every night, avoiding caffeinated beverages in the evenings, having a good mattress to provide support to the back and spine, and sleeping in total darkness with the right room temperature.
