Re: Lupus Anticoagulant and Factor V

Not at all! Factor V is a gene. You have two matching genes one from mom one from dad. Factor V is an inherited gene which makes you likely to clot. You can be heterozygous meaning one of these pairs carries the gene, or homozygous recessive which means both mom and dad gave you the factor V gene. If you are heterozygous you are not as likely to have major complications as you are if you are homozygous.

Lupus anticoagulant is like an antibody that is attacking portions of your red blood cells.
It is a different beast altogether.

At least this is my understanding. I would check with your doc to get a better idea, they are related but not the same thing.
