Genetic Predisposition


I strongly believe that anyone who suffers from any limb of CAID is experiencing symptoms because of a genetic predisposition. In other words, CAID sufferers are easily affected by their underlying problem primarily because they are genetically programmed to have a specific reaction to that particular irritant. For example, if the symptom quiz suggested that you may have experienced an allergic reaction, either this allergy runs in your family or you are genetically susceptible to it. This includes all reactions, whether the irritant is allergic, infectious, immunological, or primarily inflammatory in nature. One day genetic research will uncover the answer to the genetic defects that cause us to suffer from the symptoms of CAID. Until then, it is helpful
to understand that genetics may explain why some people are affected and others are not.
