Not all diseases involve a viral or bacterial infection. Many diseases are attributed to a dysfunctional immune system.
Known as autoimmune disease, they generally involve an overreaction by an individual's immune system to a substance. While autoimmune diseases have been around since the beginning of humankind, medical experts say rates have dramatically increased in recent decades.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), over 23 million Americans suffer from some type of autoimmune disease. Celiac disease, for example, is a common autoimmune disease that affects the digestive system.
People living with celiac disease must carefully watch their diet to ensure that they don't consume any food or beverage containing gluten. If a person living with celiac disease unknowingly or knowingly consumes gluten, he or she will experience an allergic reaction within their digestive system.
During this allergic reaction, the individual's immune system will attack his or her digestive system, which can lead to unpleasant symptoms like bloating, constipation, abdominal pain, nausea and fatigue.
In addition to celiac disease, another common type of autoimmune disease is diabetes. Technically speaking, type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, whereas type 2 diabetes is classified as a metabolic disorder.
With type 1 diabetes, a person's immune system attacks his or her pancreas, thereby restricting its ability to produce insulin and stave off high blood sugar levels.
Whether it's celiac disease, type 1 diabetes or any other autoimmune disease, the first step to treating it is diagnosing it. Only after an autoimmune disease has been diagnosed can it be properly treated.
There are now numerous diagnostics tools and methods for practitioners, allowing them to better diagnose autoimmune diseases in their patients.
