Medical Explaination of Autoimmune Disease Cause
This doctor explains that the mechanisms for autoimmunity have been figured out. Basically certain viruses or bacteria (namely EBV, HIV, Lyme Disease, latent tuberculosis, etc) may infect us at some point which attacks our VDR receptors. These receptors help protect us against foreign pathogens. Without these receptors functioning, pathogens then take over, creating a bad immune response – autoimmunity.
Celiac disease (CD) or gluten sensitive enteropathy is relativelycommon in western populations with prevalence around 1%. Withthe recent availability of sensitive and specific serologicaltesting, many patients who are either asymptomatic or have subtlesymptoms can be shown to have CD. Patients with CD have modestincreases in risks of malignancy and mortality compared to controls.The mortality among CD patients who comply poorly with a gluten-freediet is greater than in compliant patients.The pattern of presentationof CD has altered over the past three decades. Many cases arenow detected in adulthood during investigation of problems asdiverse as anemia, osteoporosis, autoimmune disorders, unexplainedneurological syndromes, infertility and chronic hypertransaminasemiaof uncertain cause.
