Great review of the issues, Bonnie. You have hit the nail on the head. The way we aggregate data to report on prevalence of different conditions has worked against autoimmune disease. I am just now coming back from a meeting focused on psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. I am pretty sure most people don’t know the prevalence — not huge, but not rare either — and seriousness, from the perspective of seriously altering your life, these conditions are. You have been a tireless advocate for shining a light on the invisible epidemic of autoimmune disease. I hope this post is widely read.
