Lupus Care at Shanahan Rheumatology & Immunotherapy:

Compassionate Support for Autoimmune Wellness

We specialize in providing expert care for individuals living with lupus—a chronic autoimmune disease that presents unique challenges. Lupus occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the body's own tissues and organs, leading to inflammation and damage in various parts of the body. This condition is most prevalent in women between the ages of 15 and 45.


Understanding Lupus

Lupus is a complex and chronic autoimmune disease with diverse manifestations. While the exact cause remains unknown, it is believed to be influenced by environmental factors, hormones, or other immune system issues. The symptoms of lupus can vary widely, but common indicators may include:

  • Joint Pain

  • Fatigue

  • Fever

  • Rashes

  • Chest Pain

At Shanahan Rheumatology & Immunotherapy, we recognize the impact that lupus can have on your life. Our approach to lupus care is rooted in providing comprehensive and compassionate support to manage symptoms effectively.

Management Strategies for Lupus

While lupus cannot be cured, it can often be effectively managed. Treatment strategies focus on avoiding triggers that can cause flares and addressing individual symptoms. Dr. Shanahan will work closely with you to develop a personalized plan that may include:

  • Avoidance of Triggers: Identifying and avoiding triggers that can lead to lupus flares is a key aspect of management.

  • Symptom-Specific Treatments: Tailored treatments to address individual symptoms such as joint pain, fatigue, and rashes.

  • Medications: Prescription medications, including immunosuppressants and anti-inflammatory drugs, may be recommended to manage the autoimmune response and reduce inflammation.
