Lupus is a chronic inflammatory condition where the body's immune system attacks healthy cells by mistake. It is believed to be caused by a combination of genetic variants and epigenetics (i.e. environmental toxins and triggers, viruses, etc.)
Throughout modern medical history, it has been discovered that each person has a unique genetic makeup.
By looking at a person's genetic makeup, researchers can gather all sorts of helpful information. They can understand not just predispositions to certain diseases (like lupus) but also how a patient metabolizes medications, substances, and even what vitamins and minerals are lacking in an individual's DNA.
