View Full Version : LUPUS being Genetic

07-24-2007, 08:07 PM
I have been told by quite a few doctors that they do not believe that Lupus is genetic. People on both sides of my family have been diagnosed with Lupus as well. I have also locally met someone who has had every other generation diagnosed with lupus.
Its enough for me to see a genetic connection. Also right now there is a study that was completed in the UK / Australia that shows a definite genetic link.

Does anyone else have any info on genetic links? I have 2 daughters who should know what to watch for....

There have been several discussions in these forums about the genetic link in Lupus as well as links to some of the research in this area. While some doctors do not believe that there is a link, massive amounts of research has proved that there is, in fact, a genetic link. Lupus is not felt to be hereditary, but it is most definitely believed to be genetic!
