Were you looking for information about autoimmune diseases? Autoimmune deseases is a common misspelling of autoimmune diseases.
Autoimmune diseases can affect the body in different ways. They are the result of the immune cells mistaking your own body's cells as invaders and attacking them. In many people, the first symptoms of an autoimmune disease are fatigue, muscle aches, and low fever. Some of the body systems that these disorders affect can include blood and blood vessels, digestive tract, eyes, and glands.
How an autoimmune disease is treated depends on factors such as the type of disease, how severe it is, and any accompanying symptoms. The goals of treatment are to relieve symptoms, preserve organ function, and target disease mechanisms. Specialists who treat autoimmune diseases include rheumatologists, endocrinologists, and neurologists.
