Hello there,

I am so sorry that you are experiencing so hard time because of your two girls. I would like to tell you that I know the answers to your questions and your concerns but I believe that no one but team of medical experts can tell you the right reasons why your daughters are suffering from rare autoimmune dieses.

As far as I know autoimmune diseases are very nasty because their own immune system is attacking healthy tissue, cells and even organs so basically they don’t have defense system as we all do.  

And since it has happened shortly after their birth it is probably some kind of genetics but this is something that only a doctor can reveille what it is.
