I've never had a problem with it as far as I know and I'm not sure if it's related to lupus or not. Hopefully someone else here might have some information for you about it. How did you find out you were deficient in it?

Take care

I'm curious like hippi, how did you find out? When I get my regular blood tests, the only vitamin deficiency they look for in me is B12. What are your symptoms?

I had my vitamin c checked through bloodwork. Not easy test to do as the lab has to handle the blood very carefully, no light frozen etc. I had no idea i had issues. I eat well balanced diet...quite strange..
