Who Do I See for an Autoimmune Disorder?
Autoimmune disease treatment varies from patient to patient, and patients may need more than one doctor to care for them. While some people may need one doctor to manage their disease, other people may require a team of doctors.
Specialists who can help treat autoimmune disease may include:
- An endocrinologist, who treats gland and hormone problems. These include diabetes and thyroid disease.
- A hematologist, who treats diseases that affect the blood. These include pernicious anemia and autoimmune hemolytic anemia.
- A nephrologist, who treats kidney problems. These include glomerulonephritis (inflamed kidneys associated with lupus).
