Systemic Lupus Erythematosus microbiome profile added

Over the years I have seen several people move from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome /ME diagnosis into a Lupus diagnosis. Today, it appears that all of these conditions share the same probable cause of a  gut bacteria dysfunction.  As the dysfunction evolves, the diagnosis may evolve – sometimes with a change of disease, other times with additional diagnosis added.

I have gathered up what has been published on PubMed for the Lupus shifts.  Having these shifts does not mean you have lupus — DNA also comes into play. The intent is give some visibility of a slide into another condition (or stepping away from).

Bottom Line

This is one more autoimmune diseases that has been associated with a ‘microbiome signature’.
