Healthy Living Family Medical – Autoimmune Clinic
When it comes to an autoimmune disease, it’s a condition where your body starts attacking itself. The immune system is mistakenly attacking your various body parts, whether that be the joints, your skin or organs. The body can mimic cells that appear similar to foreign invaders, and as explained, the immune system is responsible for defending the body from these foreign bodies.
As a result of this molecular mimicry, your body will release proteins that are called auto antibodies to attack these cells.
Being able to spot the symptoms of autoimmune disease is just as important as any other medical conditions. It’s important to try and spot these as early as possible so that our autoimmune doctors can help treat the condition itself. There are a few signs of autoimmune disease that are worth looking out for and that are likely noticeable to the patient as being abnormal. These are:
