A couple with autoimmune diseases

hi everyone 

Iam new here :) ,, I feel really very comfortable here.

I have alopecia near universalis ,, married & we love each other som much . Recently we discovered that my husband has Ulcerative Colitis which is an autoimmune disease affecting colon causing bleeding per rectum & diarrhea but his case is not that severe .

now we R consenrned about having kids. we R affraid that our kids would inheret one or both of these autoimmune diseases . I dont want to have kids suffering because they carry my bad genes :( .

I dont know what to do now . should I counsel some doctor ? or It"s not a good idea to think about having kids ?? or should I let nature plays its role as there is nobody in our families is like us ?

check out Julie Danyluk's site.  I;m sure you can control or heal the colitis with proper diet.  once it's under control you can try to have children.  you want to get pregnant when you are healthy and pass along the good bacteria to your child..  you may already have changed your diet but it's worth reading anything possible that will help.  look up leaky gut sydrome also.  most illnesses start with this.  good luck

so sorry about that..  let nature play its course and go for it.  the autoimmune paleo diet is worth looking at for both of you also.    i have scarring alopecia and was able to stop it but do have missing patches that i have to color with that powder stuff which helps a bit but my confidence is gone.    all the best :)
