Autoimmune Conditions
Share This:

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), autoimmune disease occurs when a response against certain antigens and cells in the body induces injury – either to the whole body or to a particular organ. The understanding of autoimmune diseases is hindered by the fact that some level of autoimmunity, in the form of naturally occurring auto-antibodies and self-reactive cells, exists in all people who are normally healthy. The CDC says “although an autoimmune response occurs in most persons, clinically relevant autoimmune disease develops only in susceptible persons.” Second Opinion doctors have tackled many diseases and conditions where autoimmune issues may play a role.
