  • Many of these are autoimmune conditions, and the rest of them might be caused by some form of autoimmunity. People that have a least one autoimmune condition are at risk of getting more. Don't take the following as a diagnosis. It is just something to consider, but don't let it ruin your day or your life. Many doctors will say that this could imply some kind of a toxic exposure. The problem is that without definitive evidence of a toxic exposure, it is nearly impossible to connect your autoimmune conditions with such an exposure. And unless your toxic exposure occurred recently and is giving you symptoms that have you in the hospital on your death bed, toxicologists (doctors that deal with toxic exposure) are not of much help.

  • Don't forget some of your diseases are genetic. I know for sure I got my asthma and thyroid problems from my dads side.
