My family has a history of Autoimmune diseases. Brother has Ankylosing Spondylitis (Past 18 years), Mother has Autoimmune Hepatitis (Treatment ongoing) and I myself had Uveitis last year. So, what do we expect from the future, Will we keep getting infected from new Autoimmune diseases? Is there a way to prevent?

There is a risk of hereditary transmission for future generation, but it is not a must. You can go for genetic counseling.
