Does autoimmune disease = immunocompromised?

I have the very same question. Does having autoimmune disease mean that I am more susceptible to illnesses? Do I need to be more careful than people without autoimmune issues?

Yes. I have an autoimmune disease and because of the medications that I take I have to be very careful with colds, viruses and infections. I stay away from others as much as I can not only now with the Coronavirus but with flu season as well. Just keep your distance and practice good hand washing. In flu season I'm always disinfecting the surfaces around me.

Yes!
