Autoimmune disease in children fever

Symptoms Of Autoimmune DiseaseAutoimmune diseases result due to an immune response where the healthy cells of the body are recognized as foreign antigens and destroyed by the cells of the immune system. Though the exact causes of autoimmune diseases are unknown, most of these disorders are believed to be a result of environmental conditions and genetic factors.

Around 7-8% of the total population is believed to be affected with autoimmune disorders and the number is increasing every day. The estimated numbers are, however, only an approximation and the actual number of cases might be even higher, as many of the cases remain undiagnosed due to the presence of mild to moderate symptoms, which generally goes unnoticed.

Though anyone can be affected with autoimmune diseases, it is more prevalent amongst women who are in the child bearing age. Some of the most common auto-immune diseases are celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, reactive arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, type I Diabetes, grave’s disease, Addison disease and pernicious anaemia.

Excess iodine does NOT cause Hashimoto's. It can complicate Hashimoto's or other thyroid disorder, because iodine affects the way the thyroid functions. But it does not CAUSE Hashimoto's Disease.
Hashimoto's Disease is an autoimmune disorder that has complex causes - maybe genetic, maybe viral, maybe related to childbearing. But diet is not considered one of them.
This is what it says at your link:
"People with Hashimoto's thyroiditis should avoid excess iodine (which can cause hypothyroidism) from natural sources, such as kelp tablets and seaweed

So yesterday out of the blue he asks "So when are you going to go to the doctor to control your laziness?"
He was referring to the rheumatologist who will help determine why I had a positive ANA test (likely an autoimmune disease which causes extreme fatigue).
And for the record, despite being very tired 24/7, I am NOT lazy. I work fulltime, don't call out because I'm tired, and do the majority of household chores. Really, the only thing that really suffers because of the fatigue is recrational activities, I'm much less likely to want to go out and have fun or play on the lake or whatever

Paraneoplastic pemphigus
Though there are many forms of pemphigus, paraneoplastic pemphigus is the least common and most serious. PNP is a rare autoimmune bullous disease that causes blistering. Keratinocytes, which are what make up the epidemus, separate from each other, leaving gaps. Many times the gaps become filled with fluid peel off, leaving the skin raw and open to infection. These blisters usually appear in the mouth, throat, lips, and random places on the skin. The disease is also extremely fatal, as 90% of those diagnosed with the disease die due to sepsis, multi-organ failure, or cancer that caused the disease

Oh, and a defintion: we are dying!

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease which causes inflammation of various parts of the body, especially the skin, joints, blood and kidneys. The body's immune system normally makes proteins called antibodies to protect the body against viruses, bacteria and other foreign materials. These foreign materials are called antigens. In an autoimmune disorder such as lupus, the immune system loses its ability to tell the difference between foreign substances (antigens) and its own cells and tissues. The immune system then makes antibodies directed against "self." These antibodies, called "auto-antibodies," react with the "self" antigens to form immune complexes
