Post Lupus inherited?

Is lupus inherited from family genes?

No although the predisposition might be inherited. Even identical twins don't both develop lupus although the chances are much higher It is said that there is a 10% chance if there is lupus in the family or a related disease

There are arguments either way on this. In my mother's case, her docs believe there is a hereditary component, since she had an aunt and an uncle with lupus, as well as numerous other relatives with "organ problems" usually kidney.


Considering that I have developed allergies and other things that she did, I keep being tempted to try to find a doc that would test me!

My mother has it. I did take the ana antibody test which
showed that I don't have Lupus as of the present.
