There’s no single test to diagnose autoimmune disease. Doctors review symptoms combined with specific blood markers and in some cases, a tissue biopsy. Diagnosis can be difficult because these symptoms can come from other common conditions. Many people report that it can be a long journey before getting a confirmed diagnosis.
Has this been your experience, @hmccarth5?
@hmccarth5 i, too, have been noticing the rise in autoimmune diseases. The following article says a little about the issue, but not really enough. It is nice to know that research is looking into this.
This book is very interesting and really opened my eyes!
