So I have done a lot of research on whether or not FSGS can be classified as an autoimmune disease. Some say yes some say no. They say yes because there is a certain gene making the protein attack one of our organs (kidneys).
Another reason I think it is an autoimmune disease is because my two other sisters have autoimmune diseases. Older one has antiphospholipid and the younger one has MS. NO one on my mothers side has any major issues; however, my father was adopted and was only able to find his birth mother and she was basically no help.
Any thoughts or knowledge is welcome!!
