Title: Causes Of Autoimmune Disorder


1
Causes Of Autoimmune Disorder
2
Autoimmune Disorder
  • Its a condition in which your immune system
    mistakenly attacks your body.
  •  The immune system looses its ability to
    distinguish between it own cells and the foreign
    cells.
  • Normally, the immune system guards against germs
    like bacteria and viruses.
  • When it senses the foreign invaders, it sends out
    an army of fighter cells to attack them.
  • The main part that get effected is the skin and
    the joints.

Causes Of Autoimmune Disorder
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • In this type, the body does not produce insulin.
    The body breaks down the sugars and starches you
    eat into a simple sugar called glucose, which it
    uses for energy.
  • High blood sugar can damage blood vessels, as
    well as organs like the heart, kidneys, eyes, and
    nerves. 
  • With the help of insulin therapy and other
    treatments, This can be kept in control.

4
Causes
  • Addisons disease
  • Its a disorder in the adrenal glands and its
    rare.
  • Adrenal gland produces hormones such as cortisol
    and aldosterone.
  • In this case adrenal gland gets damaged and not
    enough cortisol and aldosterone are produced.
  • It affects the way the body uses and stores
    carbohydrates and sugar.

5
Causes
  • Celiac disease 
  • Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye,
    and other grain products.
  • When people with celiac disease eat foods
    containing gluten, their immune system responds
    by damaging the finger-like villi of the small
    intestine.
  • When the villi become damaged, the body is unable
    to absorb nutrients into the bloodstream, which
    can lead to malnourishment.

6
Causes
  • Vasculitis
  • It is the inflammation in and damage to the walls
    of various blood vessels.
  • The inflammation that results narrows the
    arteries and veins, allowing less blood to flow
    through them.
  • Another term for vasculitis is angiitis.

7
Detection
  • No single test can diagnose most autoimmune
    diseases.
  • Doctor will use a combination of autoimmune
    disorder test and an assessment of symptoms to
    diagnose it.
  • Autoimmune diseases are more common in women, and
    they often run in families. Treatment for
    autoimmune diseases generally focuses on reducing
    immune system activity
