Is Anxiety Caused by Genetics?
Your genes produce proteins which overall decide how your body functions. Tiny differences in your genes, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) affect the hormones and enzymes responsible for your psychological responses. Certain genes show an elevated response to stressful events which is what makes some people more sensitive than others. There are many ways to manage stress and anxiety however. Some people can overcome it by themselves, while others may need medication or therapy.
