I have heard that Type 1 is an autoimmune disease, or when your body’s immune system attacks healthy cells. But this doesn’t change anything about the disease itself and how it works in your body. Any thoughts on autoimmune disease and what it means for health? Seems scientists are still trying to figure it out.
In cases of immune system over activity, the body attacks and damages its own tissues (autoimmune diseases). Immune deficiency diseases decrease the body’s ability to fight invaders, causing vulnerability to infections. It’s paradoxical. Your body is working very hard, at maximum efficiency, yet it leads to poor health.
