percentage of lupus patients on disability
Some time back, I saw a study that stated that the number of people claiming to be on disability for Lupus was greater than the number of people who actually were. This is a major issue that should be addressed in our education system. I’m not saying that I am on disability, but I am saying that I am on disability for something.
Lupus can be a debilitating illness, but in cases like mine it can actually be the treatment that allows me to live my life. One of the biggest barriers to getting treatment is that I have to take time off work just to recover from it. As a result, I don’t have a lot of free time to work on my degree or read for an exam.
A 2014 study found that around 11 percent of lupus patients on disability have a diagnosis of depression. This is a huge problem that needs to be looked into. I would imagine that the rate of depression among lupus patients on disability is even higher.
The problem of depression is often not recognized, and it is often treated with antidepressant medications that make it difficult to get back on track. A study in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that antidepressants that are prescribed to people with depression often don’t work as well as they should. For example, the researchers found that the drug fluoxetine didn’t offer enough relief to the lupus patients as compared to other antidepressants.
What’s worse is that this problem is also more common in women. A study in the British Journal of Psychiatry found that women with depression are twice as likely to have taken antidepressants before they got pregnant. This might help explain why women are especially vulnerable to depression and why the drug antidepressants don’t help as much as they should.
That same study found that pregnancy itself is a risk factor for depression, and it also found that women who have had a lot of sex are particularly prone to depression.
It is not currently known why depression is more common in women, although female depression is thought to be a biological response to hormonal changes during pregnancy. Other factors, such as stress, can also increase the rate of depression in women.
Well, it’s not that we’ve been told that depression is a risk factor for lupus, not that we know it’s actually a risk factor. But it’s a possibility that makes a lot of sense since depression is most often seen when something is wrong with the body that is not the brain.
In the past five years, doctors have seen that women are more likely to have depression. But it’s hard to say if that will translate to lupus rates and lupus patients. Doctors have said that women with lupus are more likely to be depressed, but they have not seen lupus rates rise.
I’m sure this is well-known, but a lot of times when we talk about women with lupus, its when we’re talking about the women who have been on disability for a long time. We’ve seen that women with lupus aren’t as prone to depression as we once thought, but its not clear to me whether this means that women who’ve been on disability are worse off or less prone to depression than women who’ve not been on disability.
