Autoimmune disorders increasing worldwide

More and more people are diagnosed with autoimmune disorders, which mainly is due to increased awareness and improved diagnostic tools.

The increase in the incidence of autoimmune disorders is due to several factors:

  • an increasing number of people are recognising autoimmune disorders as a major health problem
  • the availability of better tools for the identification of these disorders
  • the growing knowledge about the mechanisms behind the autoimmune process that helps to identify the group of chronic disorders much earlier than before.

 

As in all diagnostic testing, the diagnosis is made by the physican based on both test results and the patient history.
