Because I"m considering having children, I looked into this.

It's not likely. If you have addison's disease, it's not likely you'll pass it on. It's an extremely rare disorder. It is more likely that if you have autoimmune conditions that your children could develop asthma or other simple autoimmune conditions, such as hyper or hypothyroidism.

Thank you.

Me and my wife want another child but were thinking perhaps we was being selfish if there was a high chance of it getting addisons, so youve made me feel a lot better :D
