Sorry it took so long to get back to you.I usually hang out on the DS board.
The weight loss has helped me a great deal, too. Not in as much pain, and I completely lost prednisone for the SLE, Plaquenil is now working, as well as Lyrica for the fibro. No more high blood pressure , and I also no longer take Mirapex for restless leg. No more CPAP, either! The best thing is, my rheumy says my knee replacements can wait for another 10-15 years! I get Synvisc-One injections in my knees, and I put Voltaren Gel on them for pain.
That sounds like a lot , considering I also have to get my supplements in, but I have a routine where it's not so bad.
Hope everything continues to go well for you!
