Hi Everyone,

I hope you all are doing fine.

My mum's symptoms started about 2 months ago. She initially presented with red dots like petechiae on her legs , she then had done her full blood count including all other tests and her creatinine was 1 and ESR 45. She went on a course for betanoid and the redness was on and off on her legs for about 6 weeks. 

After 6 weeks she repeated her blood test and her creatinine is now 1.55, her urea has also increased. Her ESR is now 56. The doctors suspect it maybe lupus. 

Kindly advise if any patients experienced these symptoms? If so what treatment was done eg. kidney biopsy , tissue testing and did it resolve after taking medication. 

Thanks for all your feedback , I really appreciate it.

  • The betanoid was taken for 10 days only. and ended on the 28th December, bloods was done on the 12th of February. White cells is currently 19. 

    If any patients had this can the damage be reversed and advise what treatment was taken. Thanks
