Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Autoimmune disease is a disease that occurs when the immune cells fight against the body's own cells. These opposing body cells are healthy body cells. Normally, these immune cells fight bacteria or viruses that enter the body.
The cause is unknown. Risk factors are people who have a family history of autoimmune diseases, frequent exposure to radiation or sunlight.
Many types of autoimmune diseases can occur, for example type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Graves' disease and others.
There is no medicine that can cure this condition. Corticosteroid drugs that doctors always prescribe are to reduce symptoms. In some cases that cause the inhibition of hormone production, additional hormones from outside are needed, which can be given through hormone injections. For example, in type 1 diabetes, the hormone insulin is given regularly.
In addition to medicine, it is very necessary for the family to give patients enthusiasm in living their lives. Patients with autoimmune diseases often experience discouragement in life, because they have to take medication every day, but these drugs cannot cure it, only relieve the symptoms that appear.
In general, there are no dietary restrictions in this autoimmune disease. They can eat freely, except foods that can normally cause allergies should be avoided. However, they should eat organic food, which is food that the process of planting to marketing does not use chemicals.
So, hopefully it's useful.
