Living With Dermatomyositis and Polymyositis
One step at a time
Managing a condition like dermatomyositis (DM) or polymyositis (PM) has many important milestones. Getting diagnosed. Working closely with your healthcare team. Finding the right treatment plan. Staying on treatment. And following your doctors’ guidance.
But, along with treatment, there are other steps you can take to help manage your condition. For example, learning how to tell others about your condition and knowing when to ask for help when needed. Other steps may include making simple changes at home and getting better prepared when traveling. And there’s more you can do, such as eating healthier and starting an exercise plan.
