No surgeries, eye drops, thyroid medicine,calcium, iron and topical medications for my skin conditions is what I take everyday. I have been pregnant once with a normal delivery. I went through menapause in my mid 40's and take no hormones.

You could be right. Uveitis is associated with a lot of auto-immune and auto inflammatory diseases. Eczema, dermatitis and thyroid diseases could be auto-immune in nature. You can discuss it with your treating doctor. To read more about conditions associated with uveitis, you can follow this link - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uveitis. Auto-immune diseases are more common in women. I hope that helps.
