About 5 years ago I was supplementing with lecithin at a pretty high dose. 4-6 tablespoons a day. After 2 months of continuing to take this one night I came down with a fever and extreme joint inflammation. It has turned into a autoimmune disease for me "chronic" with joint inflammation throughout my body. Doctors dont know what it is and just prescribe me antiinflaamatorys. Did I take to much lecithin? Lecithin has high omega 6 which can lead to autoimmune? I didnt know this when I was taking it. I have heard of studies using 100 grams perday for months without problems. I was taking in around 45-50 grams I think. My immune system is not right now. It attacks my joint on a regular basis. , and flare ups are hell.

Were you diagnosed with Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia, by any chance?

While there isn't actually any definitive research proving a connection, Lecthin has been suspected of causing this, when someone was taking far too much of it.

However, the condition may also have just developed on its own, there is really no way anyone here can say. Does your doctor suspect it may have been due to the Lecthin?
