    Hi there @jaxs

    We have lots of auto immune in our family, both sides actually, so my ENT specialist said they needed to do extensive blood works to make sure my auto immune pathology was doing, they were testing for Lupus and after results we have a ? Over that, my blood results thew up abnormalities in my auto immune, so they are monitoring that,  in the meantime after 19 months  they diagnosed me with Menieres Disease, which was expected. 

    Lots of allergies interestingly on both sides of the family, and asthma too. Both our sons have bad asthma and the younger more pronounced allergies. 

    I skipped the asthma from my Mum, but got the allergies, and we have passed both asthma and allergies onto our sons. XX 

    Other auto immune issues in other family are: Diabeties, Skin allergies, food allergies, Rhumetoid Arthritis, Thyroid, Bone issues, Strokes, heart, and now Menieres, all passed down or so I am told. ? 
    Politeness costs nothing, but goes a long way in life. 
     Always look out for each other. Be kind. 
     Hugs and smiles mean the world. XX

    If the human body was a product, many of us would have asked for their money back !
    Modern living is causing bodies to malfunction more and more. The individual causes are too numerous to count.
    My immune system was grafted-on (bone marrow transplant) and I was unlucky so it has been doing its damnedest to kill me ever since.
