Coping with the Hot Weather

Coping with the Hot Weather

Hi everybody,

Parts of the UK are experiencing heat waves this week, so I'd like to encourage everybody to take extra care of themselves and others. People with lupus may be at an increased risk of heat exhaustion/heat stroke.

For information and advice about lupus and light sensitivity please read this article on our blog -

For tips on coping in hot weather, please take a look at the NHS Choices website here -

Information about the signs and symptoms of heat stroke and what to do can be found on the NHS Choices website here -

  • Thank you for that Paul just had a read at the tips. I had a hot cup of tea earlier and felt like a radiator at full blast so cold water and juice it is..really hot out there today. I can remember my mother keeping curtains downstairs, in the kitchen and living room, closed all day when the weather was like this, she didnt like the heat, made her very tired..Take care folks
