Can autoimmune disorders cause weakened immune system?
I have hashimoto's disease which is an autoimmine disorder in my thyroid causing hypothyroidism.  My immune system is so bad that I cannot even be in a closed room with people or I get sick.  I am sick so often that if I go 3 days in complete health its a shocking surprise.  Im tired. Im only 18 and I'm sick so much I cant even be happy or live my life normally cause Im so sick (with horrible horrible colds, worse than the average person).  Its debilitating.  I work out reguarly, eat healthy, take vitamins, and wash my hands around 10-20 times a day becuase I'm that paranoid.  I can't think of any other reason why my immune system is this bad other than having an autoimmune disease..can this be the cause?
