An autoimmune disease is when your body begins to build an immune response to your own healthy tissue. Common autoimmune diseases include Rheumatoid Arthritis, Type I Diabetes, Psoriasis, Lupus, Hashimoto’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Chron’s Disease, and Excema.
Autoimmune diseases effect around 50 million people in our country, most of whom are women. According to the AARDA in 2015, they are also one of the top 10 leading causes of death in women under 65.
In the way we care for our patients, we are able to identify autoimmune probability and recommend blood testing for confirmation. Once we have reviewed the labs, the doctor will make recommendations to his patients for necessary lifestyle changes as well as any nutritional supplements that will aid in improving their condition. Although many auto immune conditions cannot be cured and completely ridden from the body, we prioritize helping our patients achieve a level of health that enables them to live a normal life.
Wondering if you might have an autoimmune disease? Answer the questions below
- Do you have chronic symptoms?
- Are the majority of your lab tests in a normal range?
- Do you notice chronic joint pain?
- Do you ever experience unexplainable rashes?
- Is your digestive system seemingly abnormal?
Answering yes to any of these questions does not mean that you have an autoimmune disease but if you are looking for answers to your health questions, it could be something to start looking at. We are always here to help and answer questions, please call to set up an appointment to see if we can help.
