You’re said to have an autoimmune disorder when your immune system mistakes your normal cells for foreign bodies. Your immune system destroys healthy tissue, causes abnormal organ growth, or disrupts normal organ function.
The most common of the more than 80 autoimmune disorders are rheumatoid arthritis (RA), lupus, multiple sclerosis (MS), Type 1 diabetes, and thyroid disorders.
Autoimmune disorders lead to frustrating health issues and can result in disability if not treated.
The symptoms of every autoimmune disorder differ. But some conditions share symptoms, the most common of which are:
Autoimmune disorders usually cause sporadic symptoms. It's common to suffer flare-ups in which your symptoms become pretty intense.
The causes of autoimmune disorders are unknown. Medical experts believe that genetics, environment, and sex (women are more prone to autoimmune disease) play a role in developing these disorders.
Other things might also contribute to autoimmune disorders. For example, unidentified food intolerances can cause or contribute in some cases. Some experts believe that certain microorganisms and medications can cause the immune system to attack. Hormones might also play a role in autoimmune diseases.
