Causes of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Recommended Posts

Causes of SLE
The exact cause of SLE isn’t known, but several factors have been associated with the disease.

Genetics

The disease isn’t linked to a certain gene, but people with lupus often have family members with other autoimmune conditions.

Environment

Environmental triggers can include:

ultraviolet rays
certain medications
viruses
physical or emotional stress
trauma
Sex and hormones

SLE affects women more than men. Women also may experience more severe symptoms during pregnancy and with their menstrual periods. Both of these observations have led some medical professionals to believe that the female hormone estrogen may play a role in causing SLE. However, more research is still needed to prove this theory.
