Due to my lupus I have been losing my hair. I am practically bald. I have the rash on my head & the little bit of hair that I have left is very thin. It is very stressful. Another thing that is due to my lupus, is it is also affecting my kidney. I was diagnosed with chronic membranus in my kidney with a creatinine of 0.6 and my white blood cell are very low. What would you recommend?
