U.C. can be passed through the genes, although not everyone who has a family member gets it. Also, as it is an autoimmune disease, you're more likely to get SOME auto-immune disease--it may or may not be U.C. My mother has fibromyalgia but her sister has Crohn's. Both are autoimmune diseases. They had one or two uncles with Crohn's, but the rest of the family didn't have it. Their brother doesn't have anything like it. So like all genetic diseases, there's an increased risk that you'll get it or something related to it, but it's no guarantee.
