I would also suggest a second opinion or a very frank discussion with this doctor as to why she at least hasn't started you on Plaquenil already. You meet several of the bloodwork indicators and I have to believe you have some of the other symptoms (such as low grade fevers, mouth sores, skin rashes, sun sensitivity, joint pain, fatigue, etc.!) because symptoms would have been what led your GP to run that initial bloodwork in the first place!

The best ways to prevent lupus from worsening is to start on appropriate medication - and learn to pace yourself and stay out of the sun. Good luck - let us know how it turns out.
