  • Lupus & DNA testing

    can a person with lupus [SLE] or a person taking steriods get an accurate DNA test?

    Absolutely yes, you can be tested. While in lupus one may develop ANA (antinuclear antibodies), In no way does lupus affect the sequence of mitochondrial or Y chromosome DNA, or autosomal DNA for that matter. Just keep in mind that FTDNA is not testing for this disease, or any other, or for one's likelihood of developing a disease.
