Autoimmune Quotient

Here's an interesting article put out by the AARDA (American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association), entitled Lady Gaga Knows Her Autoimmune Quotent (AQ), Do You? Included in the article are eight steps identified by the AARDA to help assess your potential for developing an autoimmune disease. You can read more from the AARDA here.

I suppose I'm really showing my pop culture ignorance here - but I can't say that I've ever heard any of Lady Gaga's music. Um, she's a musician, right?

I wouldn't wish autoimmune disease on anyone - but the fact remains that celebrities affected with uncommon diseases can do a great deal to raise awareness.

Any celebrities with sjogren's,or any other obscure,invisible illness that takes years to be diagnosed? Wouldn't that be wonderful...not that they're ill, but that the illness can be exposed and maybe funding can be procured for research and studies. And no, I also do not know any of her music...kind of dates us, huh?
