The year 2014 was ushered in by the monthly lupus clinic and lay forum done last January 11, 2014 at the Angelo King Auditorium, UST Hospital.  It started with a lecture about the right nutrition among patients with SLE, emphasizing the need for a balanced diet accompanied by healthy lifestyle to maintain a good cardiovascular health.  Dr. Zamora enumerated the different diets that have possible adverse implications for SLE activity and those that may have possible benefit for SLE.  He also touched on the use of herbal supplements, its benefits and dangers.  Dr. Zamora also emphasized the role of maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system and the vitamins and supplements that can impact on the cardiovascular health of the patient.  After the overview of the different diets and supplements that can be given in lupus patients he the centred on how and in what ways can the patient do to improve the risk factors, in developing cardiovascular disease, by mainly reinforcing the need for lifestyle changes by proper diet, removal of vices and daily exercise.

Written by Cheryl Anne D. Tan, MD   
Sunday, 14 July 2013

The monthly lupus forum and clinics was held last July 13, 2013 at the Angelo King Auditorium of the University of Santo Tomas Hospital. This was attended by 36 patients and their respective caregivers, 21 of whom were diagnosed with SLE, 12 with lupus nephritis, 1 with Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia, 1 with Overlap Syndrome (RA and SLE)  and 1 with Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. The program started at 9:30 in the morning, with a brief lecture entitled “Avoiding Triggers” given by Dr. Cheryl Anne D. Tan, a Rheumatology fellow from UST. The lecture focused on the important reminders on patients to prevent a flare and avoid infection. This encompassed simple hand washing techniques to immunizations, and on daily self care so patients will feel good about themselves despite the chronicity of the disease.
