Auto immune disease, is when the bodies defenses work too well. It turns on itself. I am assuming you are asking what disease could hinder production of antibodies, which is a different subject. A couple that could cause a problem in antibody production would be Cancer, and the chemo for treating it and active, advance hepitis. Either you would have probably been sick enough to have seen a doctor about already.

Since you are asking this question, I am assuming you are wondering if you might have received a negative that was incorrect. Highly unlikely. The chance of not producing antibodies is extremely rare.
