Default Autoimmune disorder in cats - advice needed!

Hi forummers,
My crankiest kitty, coco, has been diagnosed with autoimmune disorder.. this is not very specific and refers to a breakdown of the immune system. there are a few types of autoimmune disorder but they are difficult to pin down and their causes are not really known. sadly there isn't really a cure for these ailments.. only medications to help deal with symptoms.. but the medications themselves can actually worsen the condition of the immune system.. does anyone have experience with this? and what can i do to make coco more comfortable?

i'll copy and paste some articles about autoimmune disorder here..
