Lupus in Hands
What is Lupus?
Lupus is an inflammatory disorder. If you have Lupus, your immune system - designed to ward off disease - becomes hyperactive, producing excessive quantities of antibodies that begin to attack normal healthy tissue.
There are several types of Lupus. One called Cutaneous Lupus affects the skin on your hands and another called Systemic Lupus affects the joints of your fingers, blood vessels, blood flow and nerves in your hands (as well as, other areas and organs in the body).
Exact causes are still unknown, but there could be genetic link and the development of the disease after exposure to some foreign agent, such as a virus. Changes in hormone levels, infections, reactions to penicillin, extreme stress, certain drugs and ultraviolet light can all trigger the condition to intensify.
Treating Lupus in your Hands:
If the location of the Lupus is in your hands, Far Infrared emitted from Prolotex™ Gloves does help to reduce the inflammation and pain in your fingers.
Regular checkups with your doctor is recommended. Have them test your urine for abnormal levels of protein.
Wearing Prolotex™ Infrared Gloves on a regular basis can help you cope with the pain in your hands. FIR may not eliminate the condition, but it will help you manage the disease. Less hand pain is always good!
You can wear them at night and during the day, the more the better.
Thank you, that's very helpful, as posting the gloves back to you would incur postage and packing costs. I look forward to receiving the replacement pair shortly. I am very pleased with the full finger gloves. I am a professional musician and have difficulty warming my hands sufficiently before playing.
FIR Gloves or Lupus?
The threads in Prolotex™ Gloves and socks are impregnated with a safe formula of bio-ceramics that emit beneficial far infrared rays (FIR). These safe waves of soothing FIR energy penetrate deep into the tissues of your fingers and toes, This soothing energy restores the health of your fingers, hands, toes and feet by increasing the molecular activity of the cells.
The stimulation of the tiny capillaries and veins in your fingers, hands, toes and feet dilate the cells and allow fresh oxygenated blood containing vital nutrients to reach the over stress areas. Better circulation to the skin means better overall health of your feet and hands.
