Autoimmune Conditions Q & A

What are autoimmune conditions?

Autoimmune conditions, also known as autoimmune diseases, are caused by a malfunctioning immune system. Essentially, when you have an autoimmune disease, instead of attacking only harmful, foreign bodies, your immune system also attacks your healthy cells.

You can fall ill with more than 80 types of autoimmune conditions. Some of the more common ones include:

  • Alopecia areata
  • Celiac disease
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Lupus
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Psoriasis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Type 1 diabetes

After you have been diagnosed with an Autoimmune Disorder by a Rheumatologist or your primary care physician, Dr. Babino can assist as a supplementary consultant using alternative therapies.

If you’re not satisfied with the treatment you’re receiving for your autoimmune condition, consider therapies with Dr. Babino at WellnessMD. To schedule a consultation with her, reach out online or over the phone today.
