Auto-immune Disorders Neutral Bay, Sydney NSW

Auto-immune disorders are defined as a condition where your immune system attacks your body mistakenly. In normal circumstances, your immune system guards you from germs such as viruses and bacteria. When these bugs enter your body, your immune system sends out cells to attack the foreign germs. When you have an auto-immune disorder, your immune system wrongly sees your healthy cells as germs and attacks your own body.

What is Auto-immune Disorders?

When an individual suffers from an auto-immune disorder, your immune system sends proteins called autoantibodies to attack healthy cells. This occurs because your immune system mistakes your healthy cells for harmful virus or bacteria cells. Doctors aren’t sure exactly why your immune system makes this incorrect distinction; however, we do know that certain people are more likely to develop an auto-immune disorder that others.

There are many examples of how auto-immune disorders may affect different groups of people at different rates. One example comes from a 2014 study that showed women have roughly double the chance of developing an auto-immune disease that men. This was around 6.4% of woman and 2.7% of men.

Some common autoimmune disorders include:

  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Graves’ disease
  • Celiac disease
  • Addison’s disease
  • And many more

All of these auto-immune disorders are different; however, many of them can first appear with similar symptoms such as fatigue, aches, swelling and numbness.
