Did you know that the majority of people living with autoimmune disorders are women, usually those who are of childbearing age? Join Michele Helfgott, MD, Parkview Physicians Group – Integrative Medicine, as she shares vital information on why women are afflicted at a much higher rate than men. The Office of Research on Women’s Health at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has declared autoimmune disease a major women’s health issue. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune disease, which occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the body’s organs and tissues. In fact, according to new estimates, one in 12 women in the U.S. will develop some sort of autoimmune disease in her lifetime.
