Autoimmune Disease is a condition in which one’s own body becomes its own enemy. That is, in this the patient’s own immune system starts attacking its own healthy cells. The job of the Immune System is to protect our body from bacteria, viruses, parasites and other micro-organisms. As soon as the Immune System senses the invasion of bacteria, viruses, parasites and other micro-organisms, the Immune System immediately becomes active and attacks the foreign body or cells (Micro-Organism).

But in autoimmune disease, the immune system starts attacking the normal cells of the body considering them as foreign, micro-organisms. So that condition is called Autoimmune Disease. Some autoimmune diseases target only one organ, but some autoimmune diseases are such that they affect the whole body.
