There are things you can do to help manage your disease. These include:

Follow your treatment plan. Keep taking your medications, even if you aren’t having symptoms. You’ll help lower your chances of inflammation and prevent further problems.

Ask about supplements. On top of your healthy, well-balanced diet, you may need a vitamin D and calcium boost. If prednisone is part of your treatment plan, these supplements can help ward off osteoporosis.

Get regular exercise. Aching joints can make exercise seem tough. But doctors recommend moving your body when you can. You’ll help your range of motion and can even ease some of your pain and stiffness.
