KD and Flu/Hepatitis B

I find it interesting that Hep B or something flu like could cause coronary problems. Makes you wonder if KD is something like a flu that most kids are immune to but the genetics of KD kids over-reacts to....but then again-I still wonder why these kids don't get it over and over.......unless that theory would be that they get regulated through the IVIG or some other method.
