Autoimmune disorder

Autoimmune disorder is the name given to a group of different conditions that arise when the immune system confuses its own healthy body tissues for antigens or foreign elements and attacks them in order to destruct them. The exact cause for the onset of these disorders is still unknown. There are around 80 different autoimmune disorders which severity changes depending on the attacked organ. Some autoimmune reactions are considered to be part of the mechanisms of some diseases such as some diabetes and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
