I've heard that autoimmune conditions can have some family connection, in my family I'm the only one I know of with lupus. My mother has Parkinson's, as did one of her great aunts and a cousin.

This site is dedicated to my daughter, Lauri Amber Reinke-Diggs, who also had Lupus.

Autoimmune problems run in my family. I also have autoimmune hepatitis. My mother has Hashiomotos, my father has Graves, one cousin has type 1 diabetes, another cousin has both rhuematoid arthritis and dermatomyositis. Several other family members have low positive ANA results - I've heard this can happen in relatives of people with autoimmune problems.
