The Lupus Book Every Lupus Patient Should Have

 

When it comes to researching Lupus, there is one book that often comes into most discussions.  If you are part of any lupus Facebook groups or patient forums, I am almost positive that you have heard of or even read The Lupus Encyclopedia.  This very informative book on lupus is like the holy grail of all books on lupus.  This authoritative book was written by world renowned Dr. Donald Thomas.  The Lupus Encyclopedia is a staple on the bookshelves of many rheumatology doctors and students and it is quite easy to see why.

According to Amazon,

The Lupus Encyclopedia is an authoritative compendium that provides detailed explanations of every body system potentially affected by the disease, along with practical advice about coping. People with lupus, their loved ones, caregivers, and medical professionals―all will find here an invaluable resource. Illustrated with photographs, diagrams, and tables, The Lupus Encyclopedia explains symptoms, diagnostic methods, medications and their potential side effects, and when to seek medical attention. Dr. Donald Thomas provides information for women who wish to become pregnant and advises readers about working with a disability, complementary and alternative medicine, infections, cancer, and a host of other topics.”

DO I NEED TO READ THE LUPUS ENCYCLOPEDIA?

Many people who suffer from lupus symptoms turn to The Lupus Encyclopedia  to gain credible information on how the body may react to lupus.  Lupus is a tricky disease to diagnose and sometimes even harder to correlate specific symptoms that may be out of the ordinary ‘lupus realm’.  This amazing book has provided vital and possibly even life saving information and is a must for every rheumatologist and lupus patient.

If you are currently suffering from lupus and looking for a lupus book of some sort, I highly recommend The Lupus Encyclopedia.  When it comes to researching lupus, there really is not a better book on the market that provides such detailed and specific information in regards to lupus.  This book could also make a great gift if you have a loved one who is suffering from lupus.

Editorial Reviews

“A wealth of detail on the many ways lupus affects the human body, the various related treatment options, a range of patient resources for support, and more… a caring, comprehensive guide to understanding and coping with lupus.”

(Library Journal)

The Lupus Encyclopedia is [a] carefully-researched, easily-understood and comprehensive book. It is, as it claims, an ENCYCLOPEDIA… If you [could have] only one book in your library about lupus, The Lupus Encyclopedia might well be it.”

(The Lupus Guru)

“There is great depth and much to learn from reading and referring to this important book… This book should stand the test of time as one of the great books about this complex auto-immune disease.”

(Lupus, the Adventure Between the Lines)

“I highly recommend The Lupus Encyclopedia. It’s an amazing source of information, and I feel empowered by the fact that I have a reliable resource to turn to whenever I need it. No matter what your symptoms are or the level of severity, you owe it to yourself to get this book.”

(Lupine Life)

The Lupus Encyclopedia is a book that that every lupus patient should have in their home library. It’s the most comprehensive lupus book out there, and is a valuable resource for anyone searching for a detailed and in-depth explanation of this complicated and mysterious disease.”

(Sara Gorman Despite Lupus)

“This is a highly readable medical text… This encyclopedia would be useful for public libraries, medical libraries, or academic libraries.”

(Amy B. Parsons American Reference Books Annual)

“… packed with facts, advice and encouragement…”

(The Nursing Times)

“This title strikes a pitch perfect balance: on one side, there is information of value to those suffering from or caring for the condition, on the other, data suitable for clinicians seeking a better general understanding of the condition. This volume represents outstanding value for money and would be a useful addition to medical, healthcare and personal bookshelves.”

(Reference Reviews)

“We can’t imagine a more thorough, readable guide to lupus than this.”

(Pain-Free Living)

“People who have lupus and their primary care doctors will find in this book all the information they need.”

(from the Foreword by George C. Tsokos, M.D., Harvard Medical School)
