What is your AQ - Autoimmune Quotient and family connection
Just another thing to read. We know this connection already but this website is interesting.

"AQ is a play on IQ and stands for Autoimmune Quotient. How likely are you or a loved one to develop an autoimmune disease? Given the family connection, knowing the health histories of other family members could help answer that question For example, if your grandmother or father or sister or uncle has an autoimmune disease, you could be more susceptible to developing one yourself. Therefore documenting and sharing your family’s medical history or AQ is key.”

According to this website there are 65 listed autoimmune diseases. (See the drop down box).

I was watching Discovery Health TV yesterday and they gave this website. It is apparently designed to educate Americans about the existence of the close genetic relationship and common pathway of disease among autoimmune diseases, which helps explain the clustering of these diseases in individuals and throughout families.

It is very interesting if you click on each autoimmune disease and click on submit you get a general idea of the symptoms for each autoimmune disease all on one website.  Some I have never heard of before.
