Understanding Immunodeficiency & Autoimmune Disease

The immune system is designed to protect the body by seeking invaders and killing them. It has special cells that deal with invaders and allergens. These cells create antibodies to fight off the infection or foreign intruders.

With a normal and fully functioning immune system, invaders like a virus, bacteria, fungus, or parasite will not proliferate.

The Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune disease happens when the immune system, programmed to defend our body against invaders, mistakes healthy cells to be foreign invaders. As a result, the immune system attacks healthy body cells, as well.

One of the components of the immune system is the Regulatory T Cells. When T-cells fail, the body fails.

The Immunodeficiency Disease

The immune system malfunction disabling the body to kill the virus and bacteria invaders. Unlike Autoimmune diseases, it does not attack healthy cells.

Immunodeficiency disorder is the most common result of people who have HIV or AIDs virus where the virus (Human Immunodeficiency Virus or HIV) causes AIDS attacks the immune system and leaves the body vulnerable to a variety of life-threatening illnesses and many forms of cancers.

Cause of immune diseases

Immune disorders are oftentimes categorized as either congenital or acquired. When you’re born with a compromised immune system. Also called a congenital or primary disorder, it is difficult to determine the actual cause.

The most common acquired immune disorder results from getting HIV, usually through blood transmission or unsafe sex.

Generally, the lack of nutrition is an underlying cause of immune-related problems. When certain enzymes (failed nutrition) diminish, toxic build up inside the immune cells ultimately compromises the whole system.

Immunodeficiency does not attack healthy cells, but autoimmune disease does

The most common autoimmune disease

The type of autoimmune disorder depends on the body tissue that is affected. There are more than 80 known types of autoimmune disorders.

1. Rheumatoid Arthritis

When the immune system attacks the joints’ lining, this results in discomfort and, many times, intolerable pain.

2. Lupus

When the immune system attacks various parts of the body. Organs, including kidneys, heart, lungs, and brains, can be damaged, and the result is extreme fatigue, joint pain, skin sores, and rashes.

The immune system is designed to attack foreign substances in the body, but Lupus attacks healthy cells, tissues, and organs.

3. Multiple Sclerosis

When the immune system attacks the Central Nervous System, it leads to mobility issues, blindness, paralysis, and death.

4. Type 1 diabetes

When the immune system attacks the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas.

5. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Related to Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, it is when the immune system attacks the intestine.

6. Psoriasis

When the immune system attacks the skin, sometimes the eyes, nails, joints. Psoriasis often results in a build-up of scales called plaques on the skin (accelerated skin cell growth).

7. Grave’s Disease

It involves the over-activity of the thyroid, which is rooted in an autoimmune condition.

8. Scleroderma

When the immune system attacks the skin and blood vessels causing them to thicken. The most common result of Scleroderma is Reynaud’s Syndrome – sensitivity of the hands and feet to cold.

9. Reiter’s Syndrome

Inflammation and pain in the joints and tendons.

10. Addison’s disease

Damages to the adrenal glands, causing a deficiency in the secretion of hormones. It results in weakness, fatigue, and skin rashes or lesions.

Known treatment

Autoimmune diseases are often treated with steroids. Medications such as corticosteroids or other immune-suppressive agents can be beneficial. In other conditions, immune-deficiency is treated by infusing antibodies to fight infections.

Supplements for immune deficiency is highly recommended as well. Laminine Fibroblast Growth Factor promotes homeostasis.
