Vasculitis (cont.)

Next Steps

Follow-up

It is very important for patients diagnosed with vasculitis to routinely follow-up with their treating physician. The response to treatment, routine evaluation of the markers of the disease, and assessment of affected organs are integral parts of follow-up care for vasculitis. Perhaps, more importantly, evaluation of possible of side effects of or intolerance to the strong medications used to treat vasculitis makes routine follow-up with the physician essential.

Depending on the type of vasculitis and its response to the medication, the treating doctor sometimes may opt to taper the medications to a lower dose or completely discontinue the medications.
