Hi @kidsmomof9, you'll notice that I moved your messages to this existing discussion called "Multiple autoimmune diseases" that @denadet started last year. Simily click VIEW & REPLY to scroll through past messages.
It states that "Three factors are at play in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases: genes, immune system, and the environment where the patient lives."
"Autoimmune diseases tend to occur in the same family (the so-called "familial aggregation)".
KidsMomof9 (do you have 9 kids?) Let me know if you'd like to find other discussions to connect with members who have the same conditions as you.
