Autoimmune diseases are conditions in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells, tissues, and organs [1]. Common symptoms of autoimmune disease include fatigue, joint pain, skin rashes or lesions, fever, and swollen glands [2]. There are over 80 types of autoimmune diseases that can affect different parts of the body such as joints (rheumatoid arthritis), muscles (myasthenia gravis), endocrine glands (type 1 diabetes) and connective tissue (lupus) [3][4][5][6]. Causes for these disorders vary but may be due to genetic factors or environmental triggers such as infections or certain medications [7][8][9]. Treatment options depend on the type of autoimmune disorder but typically involve immunosuppressive drugs to reduce inflammation and suppress the immune system.
