Autoimmune Diseases 

Continued from Part 1:

Part 2: The Real Thing or Something Else?

Several theories circulate in the medical and research communities as to what may be causes. Unfortunately, the certainties are scarce. 

 

What the professionals do know:

• Autoimmune diseases tend to run in families. 

• Women are the primary sufferers of these diseases. 

• The signs and symptoms vary across a broad spectrum but generally cause fatigue, muscle aches/soreness, and low fever. These symptoms are triggered by the reactive inflammation occurring throughout the body.

• A diagnosis frequently confirms a lifespan of suffering physically & mentally, as well as a daily dosage of pills.

• Once diagnosed, these diseases do not disappear, even though symptoms may come and go, a continuous run of good form would be classified as remission.

• Neither a cure nor common effective treatment exists.

 

What do scientists and researchers believe to be the causes of these diseases? Again, there are no concrete answers, but below are a few factors professionals believe to be possible causes:

• Stress (There is a strong link between persons diagnosed with stress-related illnesses prior to being diagnosed with an autoimmune issue)

• Poor diet, drugs, or alcohol

• Previous physical or chronic injuries

• Exposure to environmental factors

Exposure to disease, virus, or infection

• Genetics

What are the possibilities here

Straight to the topics of concurrent conversation - 

- What does virus, bacteria, and/or parasitic infection have to do with autoimmune diseases?

- Which diseases produce similar, but yet overlooked symptoms of autoimmune diseases?

- How often are unknown, or unrecognised disease often confused with autoimmune diseases, or conditions?

 

- What evidence is there to support the statement:
"Is the link more common than we think?"
