If you didn’t already know, autoimmune diseases are a constant threat to millions of Americans. If you’re wondering what they are, autoimmune disease is a condition that makes our immune system function differently than it should, which only causes problems within our body.

An immune system that functions in normal parameters will have no issue in separating foreign, invasive cells and those who are of the host’s.

However, the immune system of those that suffer from this condition views some of its own cells as a potential threat. There are many forms of this condition, and in some cases, they are so severe that they require constant hospitalization.
