My Lupus Story

Nothing is Impossible with God
How will you feel if your doctor will tell you that you have SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus) and there’s no cure on it? In 2002, I was 19 years old, on my 2nd year college when I had hematoma on my legs and I easily get tired so I went to see a hematologist to find out what was it.

Why should I be so ill like this; oh, why should it be me?

The articulate Dr. Juan Javier Lichauco, opened the morning plenary session with a lecture that
revisited osteoarthritis and updates on the diagnosis and management.  was a stimulating discussion to
say the least as it re-evaluated our knowledge of this most common form of arthritis associated with
pain, joint stiffness and reduced quality of life.  The lecture emphasized on the recognition and
evaluation of osteoarthritis by using different measures of disease severity ranging from pain scale
(VAS), physical function (by WOMAC Index) to Laquesne index of severity.  The increasing incidence of
metabolic syndrome was also associated with the increasing incidence of osteoarthritis as shown in the
study of Yoshimura in 2012. He also introduced sarcopenic obesity – obesity accompanied by low
