Autoimmune is a Dangerous Disease, Know the Causes and Treatment

It is recorded that there are 80 types of autoimmune diseases with some of the same symptoms. This makes it difficult to know whether a person suffers from this disorder or not, and in which type.

Rheumatoid Arthritis or Rheumatism

Rheumatism is a disease caused by an autoimmune disorder. Rheumatism or in medical language it is called Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a disease that causes inflammation and then results in pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints. This condition is an autoimmune disease that attacks the joints. Rheumatic sufferers will usually feel symptoms such as joint pain, stiffness, and swelling.


Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can be fatal because the body’s immune system attacks the organs and tissues of the body. Lupus can occur when the antibodies produced by the body attach to tissues throughout the body. There are several body tissues that are commonly affected by lupus such as the kidneys, lungs, blood cells, nerves, joints, and skin. Lupus sufferers often experience symptoms such as fever, weight loss, hair loss, fatigue, rashes, pain or swelling in joints and muscles, sensitivity to sunlight, chest pain, headaches, and seizures.


Psoriasis is an inflammation of the skin characterized by red rashes, dry skin, thick, scaly and easily peeled off. Sometimes, this disease is also accompanied by itching and pain. Psoriasis usually appears more often in the knee, elbow, lower back and scalp areas.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune and inflammatory disease of the central nervous system that affects the nerve cells of the brain and spinal cord. In Multiple sclerosis, the body’s immunity attacks nerve cells that have a sheath (myelin) in the central nervous system. Nerve cell damage can occur in the brain or spinal cord. This condition causes coordination between the brain and other parts of the body to be disrupted. Symptoms that are often felt in people with Multiple sclerosis are pain, fatigue, muscle tension, visual disturbances, and lack of body coordination.

Diabetes Mellitus Type 1

Type 1 diabetes is caused by an attack by the immune system on the pancreatic cells which have the task of producing insulin. This causes disruption of insulin production so that the body is unable to control blood sugar levels. If this is not stopped, there is a risk of causing damage to various organs, such as the kidneys, eyes, brain, heart or blood vessels.
