Causes of Autoimmune Diseases
Although the root cause of autoimmune diseases is not yet known, it is believed to be multifactorial. Generally, these diseases occur as a result of problems in the immune system. They usually last for a long time and get worse over time if not treated in time. Moreover, they cause pain and limit functionality, especially if joints are affected. Due to autoimmune diseases, joints, muscles, and bones gradually deteriorate. Moreover, autoimmune diseases can lead to permanent disabilities in severe cases.
Some common causes and risk factors associated with autoimmune diseases are as follows:
- Immune system failure
- Inflammation infections
- Environmental triggers

Another cause of autoimmune is a leaky gut, in which the intestinal lining develops holes or cracks inside it. These holes allow partially digested foods and toxins to enter the bloodstream.

A leaky gut is responsible for a common autoimmune disorder known as Lupus.
