Re: Lupus Carrier?
Melissa, hi. Lupus isn't a heritable disease, so your family doctor's word choice wasn't appropriate. No one really know what combination of genes and environmental factors cause it, actually, but study after study have shown it's not directly "passed". Yes, AI's tend to run in families, but even so, many family members won't get *any* AI.
I think you should borrow hardcovers from your local library and read how the lupus experts explain this. Take good care, Vee
