Patient discussion about arthrosis

Q. Our GP said that I have a greater risk for joint disease because I am HLA-B27 + . what is he talking about? My mom and dad have a spondyloarthropathy. they went to our GP and he did us some genetic tests and said that I am HLA-B27 positive, and that i have a greater risk for several diseases. what kind of diseases is he talking about?

A. HLA-B27 is a part of our immune system. Some of us )like me) have this gene and some of us don't have it. The fact you have this gene says you might have some diseases.
Those diseases are mainly arthritis for its kinds and inflammatory bowel diseases (witch I have and its totally manageable.
if your parents have only spondyloarthropathy I guess you can expect you will have a spondyloarthropathy too.
Go to your GP and ask him to explain you more about this.
