Lupus

Is losing weight due to lupus a cause for concern?

A Answers (1)

  • You can lose weight as a result of increased lupus activity in your body. Certain lupus medications can cause you to lose your appetite, and as a result, lose weight. No matter what the cause, you should speak to your doctor to make sure your weight loss does not indicate a more serious condition. If you experience a loss of appetite due to your medications, your doctor may suggest alternative medications or solutions to ease stomach discomfort.
