Autoimmune and GI: Your question is too general to answer on HealthTap. For example, autoimmune diseases such as lupus can have many manifestations related to the small and large bowel Some diseases like scleroderma can have significant problems in the digestive system with reflux being a prominent problem. RA too can have digestive issues. So, perhaps refine your question to a specific condition. Best wishes.
