Because there are a variety of autoimmune diseases that differ depending on which tissues are being attacked, there is no one symptom that unifies all autoimmune diseases. In fact, because autoimmune diseases involve the immune system, symptoms are often multisystem, which can be very confusing.
The untreated autoimmune disease can become more difficult to treat down the road. If you’ve already been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, you should seek out a functional medicine doctor who has expertise and experience with your particular disorder. At Jellison Integrative MD we have experience in treating autoimmune disease.
