Complicated question about Autoimmune Disorders

I have what I understand to be autoimmune disorders. I have Graves' disease, hidradenitis suppurativa and most recently, confirmed endometriosis. I also have other conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. I have also been struggling with fertility and suffered a miscarriage. My question is, might there be a bigger picture regarding autoimmune disorders? I am only 25 years old and these health issues are ruling my life at the moment. Pretty much all my blood tests have come back with high WBC, CRP & Neut Seg. Might there be something more sinister going on?

Also, have been told about LDN medication. Has anyone used this for Autoimmune disorders?

thanks!

Hi Endowarrior88.

LDN is potentially a great therapeutic approach to many serious and chronic diseases, however, it does not work for all and it does not correct significant fundamental imbalances.

Look into underlying factors : inflammatory processes like TNFa (re: eczema and psoriasis), or JNK gene activation (signals initiation of serious disease processes), HLA inherited A/I predisposition (Grave's), underlying (and undetected) pathogenic infections such as pathogenic Mycoplasma, Babesia, Bartonella, Borellia, Ehrlichia, as well as nutritional/mineral deficiencies (tissue minerals)
Another area to explore is chronic stress (which is usually not explored), including hidden stress, which leads to adrenal fatigue and adrenal exhaustion, normally linked to low thyroid function but also (less frequently) linked to hyperthyroid function.
You may want to consider doing an adrenal fatigue questionnaire, which I would be very happy to send you on a pm, if interested.

Have you done any allergy type of testing or food elimination diets, or perhaps seen a NAET trained doctor (energy medicine based therapy)?
Most reactive food groups are grains (wheat and gluten are the main culprits) and dairy.

May I asked you details of the Grave's disease diagnosis?

Best wishes.
Niko
