while there has been some suggestions that there is a genetic connection in LUPUS, there is no indication that the disease is transferred from mother to child to grandchild. Most doctors believe that several factors must be present and taken into consideration in order for the disease to develop: Physical factors, biological factors, genetic factors and environmental factors.
There was a study conducted with reference to "relatives" with LUPUS. However, the study was for relatives such as, cousins, aunts, uncles etc. When I asked if my daughter and myself could be included in that study, we were denied because they stated that there was no evidence that the disease was passed from mother to child????
If your daughter does not have LUPUS or any of the signs or symptoms of the disease, I do not think that her obstetrician or pediatrician will test the child for the disease. However, it might be good for both to know that you have the disease in order for them to keep an eye on any development of autoimmune disorders which may present in the child.
With reference to your question about Thamonde - I could find no information on this drug at all :cry: I am so sorry....is there, perhaps, another spelling or do you know what category of drug it is??? Since you say that you have discoidal lupus, is it an antimalarial? It sounds like it might be a corticosteroid! let me know and I will research it further for you!
I hope that I have been of some help. If you need anything further or just want a place to stop and chat about this disease, we are always here for you!
Take care of yourself and your new grandchild
Peace and Blessings
