Inflammation and Autoimmune Disease
The top sign of autoimmune disease is some sort of inflammation. Autoimmune diseases are rampant in developed countries like New Zealand and can affect any area of the body. Here are four
common autoimmune diseases:
1. Multiple sclerosis is characterised by the immune system’s attack on the central nervous system.
2. Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin disease that causes cells to build up on the skin’s surface.
3. Rheumatoid arthritis is diagnosed when the body’s immune system attacks the joints.
4. Systemic lupus erythematosus is an inflammatory condition that manifests as a range of symptoms in the skin, joints and other organs.
