What if soldiers or cops rebel against their own country and attack to the citizens of their country? We can imagine the number of chaos here and there in the whole country. In same way, when body’s protection guard i.e. Immune system begins to attack body’s own cells, the condition of autoimmune disease arises.

Autoimmune disease can be defined as a disease developed due to abnormal and attacking behavior of the immune system towards the body’s own cells. Normal behavior of the immune system is to differentiate foreign and body’s own cells, but in the case of autoimmune disease, the immune system begins to attack the body’s own cells by mistakes of foreign particles. Immune system can attack healthy cells of your joints and skin by releasing auto-antibodies in it. Some autoimmune diseases affect only one organ while others may interfere with functioning of multiple body organs.
