Your immune system is designed to protect your body’s healthy cell tissues by attacking any viruses, bacteria, pathogens, or diseases that enter your body. Simply put, it’s what prevents you from getting sick, and also what helps you feel better if you do fall ill.
However, autoimmune diseases are an expansion of that built in defense. They cause your immune system to attack the healthy cells in your body instead of the diseased ones. This often complicates the issue at hand even further because your body’s defense systems have become self destructive. If left untreated, serious health conditions may occur.
There are hundreds of autoimmune illnesses, each of which have their own unique symptoms. For instance, symptoms of Autoimmune Thyroid Diseases can include:
- fluctuations in weight
