Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune diseases occur when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks its tissues, mistaking them for foreign invaders. There are numerous autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), multiple sclerosis, and type 1 diabetes, among others. Symptoms can vary widely depending on the affected organs or systems but often include inflammation, pain, and damage to tissues. The exact cause of autoimmune diseases is complex and involves a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Management of autoimmune diseases typically involves medications to suppress the immune response and reduce inflammation. Additionally, lifestyle modifications, such as stress management, regular exercise, and a balanced diet, can help support the immune system and overall health for individuals living with autoimmune conditions.
