We compiled a selection of self-management resources for you and organized them into four main sections shown above. Some of these resources are designed to help you learn how to live with lupus and take control of common lupus-related health problems. Other resources are tools that you can use to better self-manage your health problems. This selection of resources was developed and organized based on recommendations made by a group of healthcare professionals and people living with lupus. These resources were selected based on their accuracy, simplicity, and ease of use. There are a large number of self-management resources that are available today and this selection is not meant to be exhaustive. Furthermore, it is to the decision of you and your healthcare team whether a specific resource might be useful to you.
