An autoimmune disease is a condition in which your immune system mistakenly attacks your body.


About this Event

An autoimmune disease is a condition in which your immune system mistakenly attacks your body. The immune system normally guards against germs like bacteria and viruses. When it senses these foreign invaders, it sends out an army of fighter cells to attack them.

Normally, the immune system can tell the difference between foreign cells and your own cells. In an autoimmune disease, the immune system mistakes part of your body, like your joints or skin, as foreign. It releases proteins called autoantibodies that attack healthy cells. There are a number of autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s, Celiac, Diabetes, Graves, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis), Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, and more. These diseases occur due to an abnormal immune response to a normal body part.
