The body has its own defense system (immune system) built in to protect it against infection and disease. The body’s immune system makes special proteins (antibodies or immunoglobulins) that protect and defend the body against antigens. Antigens can include harmful bacteria, viruses, toxins, or cancer cells. When an antigen enters the body, antibodies are made to destroy the antigen, and protect the body against injury or disease.
In autoimmune disorders, the body thinks some of its own cells are harmful and attempts to destroy them.There are many types of autoimmune disorders, but the most common group of autoimmune disorders is collagen-vascular diseases (CVDs). A person might have more than one autoimmune disorder at the same time. Treatment is aimed at balancing the body’s immune response and its ability to fight disease. Immunosuppressive medications, hormone replacements, vitamin supplements, or blood transfusions may be included in the treatment and control of autoimmune disorders.
