Project #55398 - Research Autoimmune & Indulge into case study

THESE ARE TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TASK, YET I GOT IT AS ONE ASSIGNMENT.

 

The immune system is responsible for recognizing “self” versus “non-self.” How this system maintains homeostasis is by fending off foreign invaders by attacking them with your own defense mechanisms. This process is accomplished via a nonspecific (innate) and specific (adaptive) immunity. Problems arise when the body cannot distinguish self from non-self and the body’s defense mechanism begins attacking self. When this imbalance occurs autoimmune diseases develop. More specifically the immune system’s antibodies begin to attack the tissues within the body.

Research an autoimmune disease of your choice. Discuss the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of the autoimmune disease that you have chosen. Make sure to include:

·              Any side effects of current treatment options,

·              Include any new treatments that may be available.

·              Why is it difficult to diagnose an autoimmune disease?

Case Study: A 45-year-old woman, otherwise healthy, presents with the following symptoms:

·              Itchy eyes

·              Difficulty swallowing

·              Problems eating

·              Mouth sores

·              Mouth pain

·              Fatigue

·              Swollen glands

Research these symptoms to find out what this patient is suffering from. Once you know the specific autoimmune disease that she is suffering from:

·              Recommend some possible treatments to ease her symptoms.

·              Let her know if her disease is life-threatening.

·              Is there a higher risk of lymphoma if you have this specific disease? Why or why not?

·              Discuss any possible complications from having this disorder.

·              What is her overall prognosis for living with this disease?
