Autoimmunity

Autoimmunity occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the body's own tissues, leading to various autoimmune diseases. Conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and systemic lupus erythematosus are examples of autoimmune diseases. The exact causes of autoimmunity are not fully understood, but genetics and environmental factors are thought to play a role. Managing autoimmune diseases often involves immunosuppressive medications to control the immune response and reduce inflammation. Lifestyle factors, such as stress management, adequate sleep, and a balanced diet, can also play a role in supporting individuals with autoimmune conditions. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are crucial for preventing further damage and improving quality of life for those with autoimmune diseases.
