For people suffering with the complications of lupus, it can be difficult to move effectively to perform daily chores or work duties. Because of these limitations, a diagnosis of lupus may qualify you for the disability benefits from Social Security. You’ll need to be monitored by your family physician or a specialist known as a rheumatologist and receive a proper diagnosis.


While the condition of lupus may limit your activities, it is very important that you still work to be active in your daily life. If you do not get exercise or eat a healthy diet, you may be at risk for developing osteoporosis which is the loss of bone density that makes your bones more susceptible to breaking and fractures.


Osteoporosis can be debilitating just like lupus so it is important to be proactive. Osteoporosis is preventable if you exercise daily and get enough calcium and vitamin D. Women are especially at risk for developing osteoporosis so it is important to follow the instruction of your doctor and take good care of yourself and your overall health.


Exercise could be as simple as taking a walk each day. There are also simple exercises your doctor can teach you to keep your bones strong and your body healthy. Depending on your limitations, you may require physical therapy intervention to ensure you are working to maintain and improve your flexibility.
