Has anyone had experience with co-occurring auto-immune issues/diseases alongside UC or Crohn's? My mother had UC in her youth, but her full proctocolectomyt cured her and she has lived her entire adult life with an ostomy bag. Still, she suffers from alopecia and, as of several years ago, lost all her hair. She also lost her thyroid due to Hashimoto's disease.
What are your experiences?
