I have seen comments here from people who believe they have both Lyme Disease and Mold toxicity. Isn't one an autoimmune disease while the other is caused by an Immune deficiency disorder? Can both exist in the same body?
Hi @kaysey you bring up an interesting question.
I wanted to share this journal about the relationship between autoimmune diseases and immunodeficiencies.
Note in the abstract how it mentions that the presence of an immunodeficiency can lead to an increased likelihood of developing an autoimmune disease.
I hope this helps!
