About Autoimmune Disease
The term “autoimmune disease” refers to a varied group of illnesses that involve almost every human organ system. It includes diseases of the nervous, gastrointestinal, and endocrine systems, as well as skin and other connective tissues, eyes, blood and blood vessels. In all of these ADs, the underlying problem is “autoimmunity” – the body’s immune system becomes misdirected and attacks the very organs it was designed to protect.
Autoimmune diseases affect various organs and organ systems. In the United States at least 23.5 million are affected by some form of autoimmune disorders, and are one of the leading causes of death and disability.
