I got a copy of my urine report. Enterococcus is the bacterium and I also discovered I have kidney stones. Calcium Oxolate crystals were in my urine. Before last summer I didnt have a thing wrong with me! Now I have gall stones, kidney stones, Lupus, IBD, am diabetic due to steriod therapy, and appear to be having Sjogrens symptoms. It can stop NOW. You guys have a problem with chronic Enterococcal bacterium?

I don't know about specific bacteria . . . but lots of members do have the issues you've mentioned. Sad, isn't it? It is a real domino affect.

I wonder if the diabetes relents when we can wean from the prednisone. I haven't seen a topic on that one.

Funny thing is . . . my numbers were indicating glucose interolerance (diet controlled, no meds needed) and after I was on plaquenil for a while, my numbers went down to normal. I later read that plaquenil actually lowers our glucose numbers.

I'm sorry you are dealing with SO much right now. *sighhhh* It can be overwhelming with each new issue and you've had so much all at once. Sorry sis.

Hugs and . . .
