Nancy from Australia takes Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) for Relapsing Polychondritis and Sjögren's Syndrome. Nancy had symptoms for 5 years and was diagnosed four years ago when she was 68. Nancy had just finished a year of treatment for breast cancer and suddenly got pericarditis, which is inflammation of the pericardium around the heart. Her daughter was told that her diagnosis was hopeless.
With conflicting advice from her immunologist and her doctor, Nancy did her own research and found an article about Low Dose Naltrexone. Nancy had to source the LDN herself as her doctors were unwilling to prescribe it but once she had it she very quickly felt improvements in her symptoms. She had more energy and less pain, the inflammation beginning to subside. Nancy’s advice to anybody with autoimmune problems is to give it a try, it’s made a big difference to Nancy’s quality of life.
