Autoimmune disorders run in families and are caused when the body's immune system begins to attack healthy tissue - this causes inflammation and damage. Symptoms are known as particular branches of autoimmune disease, such as thyroiditis (Hashimoto’s or Graves’ Disease), lupus, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and coeliac disease for example. Several symptoms can be associated which means an individual's family members could be diagnosed with different symptoms of autoimmune disease.

Characteristics of autoimmune disorders may include chronic, progressive arthritic symptoms, fever, fatigue, muscle weakness, and/or a rash that can not readily be explained.
