Familiarity with the seven self-immune diseases that affect the immune system of women

No one nearly knows the cause of this, but recent research suggests that the difference in how genes can be expressed in women can be the cause of this event. For whatever reason, the incidence of these diseases is increasing. Therefore, recognizing these diseases will be very helpful in coping with them. There are at least 80 different autoimmune diseases. Although some of these diseases have unique symptoms, however, there are many common symptoms, including fatigue, dizziness, low fever and inflammation that can cause redness, fever, pain and swelling.

Treatments will vary depending on the type of disease, but often include anti-inflammatory drugs, immunosuppressive drugs, or natural biological agents. These drugs act as a substitute for natural substances produced in the body or as inhibitors of some of the immune system components.

In addition to medications, natural therapies such as reducing inflammatory drugs such as sugar and sugar, saturated fat, reducing stress, reducing the amount of toxins, and improving bowel function are also on the agenda. The cause of attention to intestinal function is due to the large part of the immune system. In the following, we will get acquainted with the seven most autoimmune diseases that affect most women:

Rheumatic arthritis or joint rheumatoid arthritis
About 4% of women develop advanced arthritis during their lifetime. It causes symptoms of joint inflammation throughout the body, including hands, fingers, elbows, knees and hips.

Rheumatoid arthritis is different from osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is an arthritis analyzer that is associated with wear and tear of the joints. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include pain, fever, fatigue, weight loss and loss of appetite, which increases rapidly and worsens within a few weeks. This process continues over time. Rheumatoid arthritis creates symmetrical symptoms, which means that both sides of the body are involved.

The treatment of arthritis rheumatoid arthritis such as ibuprofen to reduce swelling and pain, prescription drugs to prevent immune attacks, and physical and occupational therapy to improve mobility. Lifestyle changes like exercise, weight management, and healthy lifestyle are also key.

SLE lupus
Of the lupus, which has about 1.5 million people, about 9 in every 10 people are women. This disease affects the skin, kidneys, joints, heart, lungs and other parts of the body. Since lupus can affect many different organs, it often comes with a wide range of symptoms that can make it difficult to diagnose. Symptoms may include severe fatigue, headache, pain and swelling of the joints, fever, anemia, swelling in the thighs, legs, arms or around the eyes, chest pain in deep breathing, rash or parotid rash around the cheeks and nose Allergic to light or the sun, hair loss, abnormal blood clotting, whitening or blue-tinged fingers during colds, and mouth or nose injury.

Treatment often contains corticosteroids and other anti-inflammatory drugs that help reduce inflammation, suppress the immune system and minimize damage to the organs.

Hashimoto's thyroiditis
Hashimoto's thyroiditis occurs when the immune system attacks the thyroid gland. This organ is a protruding gland that is located in the center of the neck, usually leading to a deficiency of thyroid hormones or hypothyroidism (hypothyroidism). Hashimoto's thyroiditis affects 14 million Americans, the most common type of thyroid disorder.

Some people notice swelling in front of their throats or neck (known as goiter). Other symptoms may include weight loss fatigue, hormonal imbalance, muscle or joint pain, cold hands and feet, dry skin and nails, hair loss, constipation, depression, memory loss, or thinning of the sound. These problems are usually corrected by the use of hormones made to replace thyroid hormones.

A dermatologic disorder that causes fast growth of skin cells. Psoriasis may be the only autoimmune disease that is common in both men and women. The most common form of psoriasis is plaque, which appears quickly. Red plaques with white oyster clades that are made up of dead skin cells. These shells or plaques, which are often itchy and painful and can leave and bleed, often appear on the scalp, knee, elbow and waist.

Mild forms of psoriasis can often be controlled with special moisturizers and shampoos, but in moderate to severe cases, a combination of topical treatments, light therapy and medications, including biological ones, will often be needed.

Psoriatic arthritis
If you are suffering from psoriasis, you probably will not get this disease, but 40% of people with psoriasis develop in their advanced type, psoriasis arthritis. This type of inflammatory arthritis usually involves large joints. In severe cases, pain, stiffness, swelling and damage occur inside and around damaged joints. Initial treatment, including oral medicines to reduce inflammation and swelling, may prevent joint damage due to disease progression.

Sjogren syndrome
In the disease of Sjögren syndrome, the immune system attacks the tear and salivation glands. This condition reduces the amount and quality of their discharge and causes symptoms such as dry eye, vaginal dryness, and dry mouth. It can also cause joint pain and fatigue.

Four million people are with Sjögren's syndrome and the average age of this is
