  • Graves' disease, also known as toxic diffuse goitre, is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. It is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. Symptoms include irritability, muscle weakness, sleeping problems, a fast heartbeat, poor tolerance of heat, diarrhoea, and unintentional weight loss.
  • Hashimoto's disease, also known as Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease in which the thyroid gland is gradually destroyed. The thyroid may enlarge forming a painless goitre. Symptoms include weight gain, feeling tired, constipation, depression, and general pains.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a long-term autoimmune disorder that primarily affects joints. It typically results in warm, swollen, and painful joints. Pain and stiffness often worsen following rest.
So, the correct answer is 'All of the above'.
