Auto-Immune Diseases

(RA, SLE, auto-immune thyroiditis)

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis ​- Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder. In some people it can affect more than just the joints. The condition can also damage a wide variety of body systems such as the skin, eyes, lungs, heart and blood vessels.
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus​- Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a disease where the immune system of the body mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. SLE can affect the skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs.
  • Autoimmune thyroiditis​- is a chronic disease that causes the body to interpret the thyroid​gland and its hormone products T3, T4 and TSH as threats, therefore causing​

the body to produce specific antibodies that target the thyroid’s cells, thereby destroying it.
