TREATMENT OF AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE
Treatment for autoimmune disease is diverse, and in recent years, the options have increased rapidly. Organ-specific autoimmune diseases of endocrine function, such as TID and autoimmune thyroiditis, may be treated with hormone replacement. In contrast, other forms of organ-specific autoimmune disease such as autoimmune thrombocytopenia, AIHA, and multiple sclerosis are treated with immunosuppressive medications, as are the majority of systemic autoimmune diseases. Immunosuppressive medications can be categorized by mode of action.
