Hi Megan,

Yes, Its all auto-immune and Diabetes part in way way back in the family, skips 4 generations, so my daughter is fourth gen...and there's no other family that has Lupus, so it is interesting all round and its seems since my Daughter was diagnosed, it was 1 in 700 were being diagnosed in 2008 and now its gone to 1 in 400 as 2011, so thats a short period of time.
Wish you all the best and apologies sorry to hear about your Mom..
