Autoimmune diseases

Autoimmune diseases result from an abnormal immune response from the body. In autoimmune diseases, the body's own antibodies will attack cells, tissues and the like that should normally be in the body - this is a faulty defense mechanism that destroys healthy, normal cells. There are a number of different autoimmune diseases, with some attacking certain organs and others attacking certain types of tissues.


- Treatment of autoimmune diseases

The most common form of treatment for autoimmune conditions is included immunosuppression - that is, drugs and measures that limit and cushion the body's own defense system. Gene therapy that limits inflammatory processes in immune cells has shown great progress in recent times, often in combination with increased activation of anti-inflammatory genes and processes.


Some known forms of autoimmune conditions:

Crohn's disease (attacks the entire intestinal system, from esophagus to rectum)

Type 1 diabetes (the immune system destroys the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas)

Epstein Barr (cause of mononucleosis, among others)

Graves' disease (too high metabolism)

Hashimoto's thyroiditis (too low metabolism)

Lupus (common term for several different lupus diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus)

Multiple sclerosis


Rheumatoid arthritis

Sjögren's disease (attacks salivary and tear glands)

Scleroderma (systemic sclerosis)

Ulcerative colitis (attacks the large intestine)

Conditions and diagnoses not associated with autoimmune diseases due to lack of evidence and evidence from research

The following list includes conditions that do not have sufficient research in the back to say that they are caused by autoimmune diseases, but which in many cases have been indirectly associated with autoimmune conditions. Recent research in the field could possibly move several of these conditions up in the list associated with autoimmune disease.
