"If you are in clinical remission for your JRA, does that make you still immunocompromised?" "What do you mean?" I asked. He continued to explain, "as in, are you always immunocompromised because of your autoimmune disease? Or does it just stop forever when you go into remission?" I said that I dont entirely know the answer to that even though I have been living with autoimmune diseases and Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis for my whole life. My assumption was most likely I have some form of immunocompromization. This is typically manifested in the fact that I can get sick easily, more frequent, longer, and usually more difficult to get rid of. Since this question got my critial thinking going, I endeavoured to find an answer in the only way I know how, through research!
