Lupus Risk Factors

Does lupus run in families?

A Answers (1)

  • Researchers believe that family history and environment have something to do with developing the problem. A family member can pass on a tendency toward lupus and then factors in your environment can affect that tendency. In rare cases, a mother can pass the lupus antibodies to her child during pregnancy creating a condition called neonatal lupus.
