Explanation Of Autoimmune Diseases?
Good afternoon, I want to ask … what does autoinum mean?
Thank you for the question.
Normally, the immune system plays a role in counteracting and destroying foreign substances because they are considered harmful to the body. However, in some cases, this immune system can mistakenly recognize healthy body cells so that they are considered harmful to the body when in fact they are not. As a result, the body's immune system releases proteins called autoantibodies to attack healthy body cells, so that their functions become disrupted. This condition is called an autoimmune disorder.
There are many types of diseases related to autoimmune disorders, for example lupus, psoriasis, Graves' disease, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and so on. Each type of this disease can have symptoms, diagnostic steps, as well as different treatments. But in general, most autoimmune diseases have not been clear about the exact cause until now, and therefore, the definitive treatment is often not yet determined.
That's all our explanation, hopefully it helps
