    Sugar can trigger a Lupus flare?? How? When I tap the site, I get nothing; no info.

    I’d like more info on “mini-strokes” and not so mini
    A stroke! &Lupus Fog. I knew I was having a stroke in 2015–not so mini! But the MRI showed I had been having mini-strokes for several years before. I had been forgetting things!

    Well where is the response for Suzanne Zeleznik question? since August 24, 2017? I also jump to find out why sugar causes flares, I suffer from hypoglycemia actually it was the first symptom I had, so I have to have some sort of sugar.
