    I have a son dx’ed w/ autism at age 3. He is now 25. He has already been dx’d with 2 autoimmune diseases, Graves disease-age 16 (thyroid has been radioablated texas children’s hosp), and eosinophilic esophagitis age 23 (ER for stricture/biopsies taken). Fascinating research! have always thought it was all related. He had genetic testing (baylor coll med cleberg gentic center age 16); nothing specific found at that time. Please let me know if we can be of any help. Are there any national data bases regarding this?
