Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis Causes

Advertisement
#

No known cause has been pinpointed for most forms of juvenile idiopathic arthritis. There is no evidence to suggest that toxins, foods or allergies cause children to develop the disease. Some research points toward a genetic predisposition, which means the combination of genes a child receives from his or her parents may cause the onset of arthritis when triggered by other factors.

The Arthritis Foundation is the leading organization 
providing support and funding research to improve the 
lives of individuals with arthritis. You can help!
