Autoimmune Disorders

Autoimmune diseases are a broad range of related diseases in which a person’s immune system produces an inappropriate response against its own cells, tissues and/or organs, resulting in inflammation and damage. There are over 80 different autoimmune diseases, and these range from common to very rare diseases. Depending on the type, an autoimmune disease can affect one or many different types of body tissue. It can also cause abnormal organ growth and changes in organ function. There are many autoimmune disorders. Some of the more common autoimmune disorders include Grave’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto thyroiditis, type 1 diabetes mellitus, systemic lupus erythematous (lupus), and vasculitis. Additional disorders that are believed to be autoimmune include Addison disease, polymyositis, Sjogren’s syndrome, progressive systemic sclerosis, many cases of glomerulonephritis (inflammation of the kidneys), and some cases of infertility. Symptoms vary depending on the disorder and the part of the body affected. Some autoimmune disorders affect certain types of tissue throughout the body—for example, blood vessels, cartilage, or skin. Other autoimmune disorders affect a particular organ. Virtually any organ, including the kidneys, lungs, heart, and brain, can be affected. The resulting inflammation and tissue damage can cause pain, deformed joints, weakness, jaundice, itching, difficulty breathing, accumulation of fluid (oedema), delirium, and even death. Since many autoimmune diseases share similar symptoms, diagnosis is often challenging. The diagnosis of autoimmune diseases differs based on the specific disease. Diseases can sometimes take years to diagnose because many symptoms of autoimmune disorders mimic other diseases. The treatment for the autoimmune disorders include the drugs that suppress the immune system, including corticosteroids and for some autoimmune disorders, plasma exchange and intravenous immune globulin .
