Autoimmune Profile

The immune system normally guards against germs like bacteria and viruses. When it senses these foreign invaders, it sends out an army of fighter cells to attack them. Normally, the immune system can tell the difference between foreign cells and your own cells. In an autoimmune disease, the immune system mistakes part of your body — like your joints or skin — as foreign. It releases proteins called autoantibodies that attack healthy cells. Some autoimmune diseases target only one organ. Type 1 diabetes damages the pancreas. Other diseases, like lupus, affect the whole body.


Autoimmune Profile


The early symptoms of many autoimmune diseases are very similar, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Achy muscles
  • Swelling and redness
  • Low-grade fever
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Numbness and tingling in the hands and feet
  • Hair loss
  • Skin rashes

Our key services are a variety of types of auto-antibody tests. The most common one used is the Antinuclear Antibody Test (ANA Test). This test indicates whether there is a chance of the individual suffering from an autoimmune condition however it cannot diagnose the specific  autoimmune condition. If the test is positive further tests will need to be run to diagnose the exact cause of the symptoms.
