Auto-immune pathology is one of the common diseases that can be dangerous if not treated in a timely manner. The disease consists of more than 180 different types, common in young people, females are at greater risk of the disease than men.
1. What is automedive pathology?
When a person's immune system is disturbed and it is impossible to distinguish itself from external antigens and reverse attack the cells of the body, thereby giving birth to diseases called auto-immune pathology. The disease is common in young people (from 20 to 40 years old), females often have more autoimed disease than men; the elderly and children are less susceptible. The disease can progress in batches, from mild to more severe and complex levels. If not detected and treated in time auto-immune pathology can lead to many dangerous complications.
2. Causes of autommmunity pathology
There are many causes of automedive disease, including:
- Polluted habitats: The immune system can be directly damaged by chemical intoxication (such as mercury, lead, hair dyes, pesticides,…) At this time, the tissues of the body are damaged and modified, making the immune system in distinguishable from external antigens, leading to automedic disease. Especially lupus erythety will become more serious in polluted habitat conditions.
- Intestinal bacteria disturbance: Excessive overuse of antibiotics or contraceptives causes the intestinal microbial system to be unbalanced, leading to disorders of the immune system.
- Infection: Is the cause of a number of autothetic diseases such as spinal inflammation, rheumatism,… The immune system confuses body cells with germs and attacks those cells.
- Vitamin D deficiency: vitamin D plays a role in strengthening the immune system, so vitamin D deficiency impairs the immune system.
3. Common auto-immune diseases
Autoive pathology has more than 180 different types, however the article only mentions the most common autogive diseases.
- Lupus Erythem Erythem system
Lupus erythematous is a skin disease. The disease manifests itself as a seemingly common rash, but if a rash appears in the whole body, this can affect other bodies in the body such as the kidneys, joints, heart and brain. Systemic lupus erythemata has common symptoms of rash, fatigue and joint pain.
People with psoriasis often have silver or white scales that appear on the skin. The cause of this phenomenon is that the process of creating new skin cells takes place too quickly, causing them to accumulate and form inflamed red patches. According to the study, about 30% of people with psoriasis have symptoms such as stiffness, swelling and joint pain – known as psoriatic arthritis.
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is when the immune system is disturbed and mistakenly attacks the joints, leading to hotness, redness, stiffness of the joints. This form of the disease occurs not only in the elderly as common arthritis, but may appear earlier, usually in their 30s.
- Type 1 diabetes mellitus
In normal humans, the pancreas plays a role in secreting insulin hormones to regulate blood sugar levels at the appropriate threshold. However, the immune system in humans with type 1 diabetes mellitus attacks and destroys those insulin-producing cells. This leads to uns controlled and increased blood sugar levels. Ultimately damages many other muscles such as nerves, eyes, kidneys and the heart.
- Multiple sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis destroys the protective layer around neurons in the central nervous system – called the myelin crust that causes the transmission and receiving of signals between the brain and the spinal cord to be affected. With multiple sclerosis, patients may have difficulty walking, or staying balanced. The disease can take place in various severe forms.
