The human immune system – is a complex of structures of the body, which provide protection from disease by recognizing and destroying cancer and tumor cells as well as pathogens. The human immune system identifies a set of different kinds of “strangers” and separates them from their own cells. The human immune system, each individual, but the bodies' immune system all alone. The human immune system consists of:

Here are organs of the human immune system, system of a guardian of our health. The body immune system has its weight in the normal state is about 1 kg.

The human immune system builds a defense in a few levels. In addition, each level of protection of human immune system is more specific than the previous one. The human immune system at the first level – the usual physical barery. If the pathogen penetrates through these barery then takes over innate immune system. If the innate immune system is powerless against the invading foreigner, the person's immune system to this is the third level – acquired immune defenses. This part of the human immune system is formed in the course of an infectious process in the form of immune memory. This allows the memory to the human immune system faster and more responsive then the appearance of the same infection.

Incidentally, the transfer factor – a unique and versatile method for forming a given level of immune protection.

The human immune system has many ways to detect and destroy foreign bodies and the process is called immune response.

The functions of human immune system are very diverse. The bodies' immune systems make the tireless work of its specificity. The function of the human immune system is maturing central organs of immunocompetent cells. The function of the immune system peripheral organs is reproduction of reactive cells – antigens.

All the cells of the human immune system is constantly circulating and are in a ceaseless interaction, releasing cytokines and immunoglobulins. And it provides all the protection mechanism of the organism. Here is a brief and all the functions of the human immune system. Well, if you simply say that the main function of the immune system is to protect the body against all aggressors and maintain its operation in the normal state. That's it.

A disease of the human immune system naturally leads to the breakdown of the whole organism. Diseases of the immune system can be divided into two types: when the human immune system does not provide resistance to infection (weakened immune system) and when the same immune system exhibits hyperactivity, mistaking their tissues and cells for foreign and attack them (autoimmune disease).

Diseases of the human immune system can cause environmental toxins, careless man's relationship to your body. Diseases of the human immune system can lead to very disastrous results, and often fatal. Causes of such terrible diseases as AIDS, cancer are just a weakened immune system. Poor nutrition, addiction to alcohol, tobacco, lack of exercise and sleep – the result of all this weakened immune system.

Today there is a way to strengthen the body's immune system and are not just words. Transfer Factor the test of time and its practical application. There is no immunostimulant capable of somehow compete with him. Transfer factor has no contraindications (except individual intolerance), age restrictions. If you have a weakened immune system – your exit transfer factor. If you have diseases of the immune system – your exit transfer factor.

    What will tell me if someone has type 1 or type 2 diabetes?
    I have this assignment where we are given a scenario and are supposed to say if the person has type one or two diabetes. What is the definitive clue that I should be looking for? Aren’t the signs and symtoms very similar? I know the onset, severity and cause are different. Thanks!

      Difference between type 1 and type 2

      What is Type 1 Diabetes?

      Type 1 Diabetes is a disorder in which the body does not produce insulin (a hormone that aids in moving sugar from the blood to the cells). This type of diabetes can be due to a virus or autoimmune disorder in which the body does not recognize an organ as its own and attacks it. In this case the body attacks an organ known as the pancreas where insulin is made. This type of diabetes is usually diagnosed before age 40.
      What is the treatment for Type 1 Diabetes?

      Those with Type 1 Diabetes are required to take insulin injections to move sugar from the bloodstream.
      What about Type 2 Diabetes?

      Type 2 Diabetes occurs when insulin that the body produces is less efficient at moving sugar out of the bloodstream. Some sugar is moved out of the blood, just not as effectively compared to a person with normal insulin efficiency. High blood sugar is a result of this. Type 2 Diabetes used to be thought of as the adult onset type of diabetes. However, an alarming rate of children are now being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.
      How is Type 2 Diabetes Treated?

      Diet, exercise, weight loss, and in many cases medication are the treatment for this type of diabetes. Occasionally, someone with Type 2 may be placed on insulin to better control blood sugar. This type of diabetes is associated with physical inactivity and obesity

    Choose any disorder of the human body that you like. Use a reputable website or other resource to give us a brief description – include prevalence of the disorder, symptoms, treatment, how you get it (is it an infection or hereditary, for example). I would pick something I am personally interested in – but don’t feel like you have to explain why you are interested (I don’t want you to get too personal – unless you want to).

    Can both parents having positive blood types cause miscarriage?
    My husbands blood type is o+ and mine is a +. we have been ttc for over 3 years now, only chemical pregnancies. Could our blood types have something to do with our fertility problems and early miscarriages? I go to my re next week and I plan to ask him. I was just wondering if you all had any information about this. Thanks for your help

    1. katsura3568

      Your and your DH’s blood types have no bearing on your ability to conceive.

      You don’t say how many chemical pregnancies you’ve had….

      One or two is usually chalked up to chromosomal issues (not blood-type related) and bad luck. But several of them, with no successful pregnancies, might suggest a condition called Recurrent Pregnancy Loss (RPL). Google that for more info so you can ask your RE about this at the appointment. Generally, 3 or more losses warrants an investigation into possible RPL and what might be causing it (usually autoimmune issues or clotting disorders, but could also be genetics).

      More commonly, chemical pregnancies are caused by chromosomal issues as aforementions, or by a luteal phase defect – either a thin uterine lining that prevents successful implantation or not enough progestone being produced to sustain an early pregnancy.

      There are lots of treatments available that will help you bring home that bundle of joy, but you need to find the cause first. Your RE is the best person to help you.

      Good luck and much baby dust to you!

    What is the condition of beta cells in diabetic patients?
    I read some articles but can’t find the condition of the beta cells. Once said they are lost due to autoimmune disorders. Does this mean that they have been destroyed and no longer exist within the body or they are still there but they are not functional i.e. they’re there but they’re not producing insulin. Thanks for clarifying?

    1. sksff88

      Type 1 Diabetes (aka Juvenile diabetes), is a condition in which there is a complete absence of beta cells (thus insulin) or even if they are present, they do not secrete insulin.

      And yes autoimmune disorders can destroy the beta cells, thus leading to cesation of insulin production.

    Can a seizure be caused by autoimmune disorder?
    I have a friend whose body is attacking itself, fighting infections that aren’t there and causing damage to healthy tissue. Lately he has been having seizures, where his body shakes violently, saliva spills from his mouth, vision is blurred and there’s the sound of rushing wind. We have looked up these symptoms and they don’t seem to have anything to do with his disorder. Aside from the obvious choice of going back to the doctors, is there something we’re missing? Is there a connection between his disorder and the seizures? Thank you

    1. Jarvis

      Yes, thats possibly linked.
      I don’t know what type of autoimmune disease your friend has, but it sounds pretty nasty.
      Some can affect the brain, and cause seizures.
      I’d get on to it pronto, some wise medicine from a clever doctor might help prevent a little long term damage eh?

    What are the chances of having a diabetic child if the father is diabetic?
    I’ve read conflicting information on this. If the father is a type one diabetic, is there a greater chance of the child also being a type one?

    1. Ben Trolled

      ■If an immediate relative (parent, brother, sister, son or daughter) has type 1 diabetes, one’s risk of developing type 1 diabetes is 10 to 20 times the risk of the general population; your risk can go from 1 in 100 to roughly 1 in 10 or possibly higher, depending on which family member has the diabetes and when they developed it.
      ■If one child in a family has type 1 diabetes, their siblings have about a 1 in 10 risk of developing it by age 50.
      ■The risk for a child of a parent with type 1 diabetes is lower if it is the mother — rather than the father — who has diabetes. “If the father has it, the risk is about 1 in 10 (10 percent) that his child will develop type 1 diabetes — the same as the risk to a sibling of an affected child,” Dr. Warram says. On the other hand, if the mother has type 1 diabetes and is age 25 or younger when the child is born, the risk is reduced to 1 in 25 (4 percent) and if the mother is over age 25, the risk drops to 1 in 100 — virtually the same as the average American.
      ■If one of the parents developed type 1 diabetes before age 11, their child’s risk of developing type 1 diabetes is somewhat higher than these figures and lower if the parent was diagnosed after their 11th birthday.
      ■About 1 in 7 people with type 1 has a condition known as type 2 polyglandular autoimmune syndrome. In addition to type 1 diabetes, these people have thyroid disease, malfunctioning adrenal glands and sometimes other immune disorders. For those with this syndrome, the child’s risk of having the syndrome, including type 1 diabetes, is 1 in 2, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA).

      Caucasians (whites) have a higher risk of type 1 diabetes than any other race. Whether this is due to differences in environment or genes is unclear. Even among whites, most people who are susceptible do not develop diabetes. Therefore, scientists are studying what environmental factors may be at work. Genes influencing the function of the immune system are the most closely linked to type 1 diabetes susceptibility, regardless of race. One of those genes is HLA-DR. Most Caucasians with diabetes carry alleles (gene variants) 3 and/or 4 of the HLA-DR gene. The HLA-DR7 allele plays a role in diabetes in blacks, while HLA-DR9 allele is important in diabetes among Japanese.

    If someone in your family has Type 2 can genes be passed and you get Type 1?
    What if a grandparent has Type 2. Can it get passed down to me in the form of Type 1?

    1. AyeHye

      That’s a really interesting question.

      I think the answer is no. Type 1 diabetes is actually an autoimmune disorder: your immune system attacks cells in your pancreas and kills them.

      In type 2 diabetes, those pancreatic cells work properly, but other cells in your body develop insulin resistance and don’t accept the insulin.

      Because the mechanisms of action are so different, it seems unlikely that very many of the same genes are involved.

    Is it typical for people with diabetes to have other autoimmune disorders such as lupus and thyroid problems?
    I have type 1 diabetes and have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and am going through testing for lups, i have known several other women with type 1 & 2 diabetes having lupus. is this a common thing? something to somewhat expect?

      Not sure about Lupus, but I know Celiac is more common in people with Type 1 diabetes. I would say best person to ask is your endocronologist.

    What are some psychological characteristics of type 1 diabetes?
    Hi.
    Are there any psychological characters of type 1 diabetes?
    So far I have : Higher risk for eating disorders, depression, and dementia/
    What am I missing?

    1. Fireopal87

      Even though type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, I guess quality of life could be decreased in some people who have it. A major diagnosis that is going to affect you for the rest of your life frequently causes depression – both at the time of diagnosis and throughout your life due to dealing with the constant monitoring and care that type 1 diabetes requires.
      I recently read a nursing journal article that young females with type one diabetes are at higher risk for anorexia nervosa due to the strict adherence of a ‘diabetic diet’ and it discussed insulin omission with this.

      I haven’t heard about the dementia one though – hope you’re not right there!

    What is the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes?
    I always see commercials about Type 1 and 2 diabetes, what are they exactly and what causes them? Please help!

    1. natpractitioner

      In a nutshell, type I diabetes is thought to be an autoimmune disorder in which the beta cells of the pancreas stop producing insulin. Type II diabetes comes from insulin resistance and is usually seen in older, overweight patients whose pancreas is working. Type II diabetes is preventable through proper diet and lifestyle, but type I is not preventable at this time. Maybe we will learn more in time so that type I diabetes can be prevented as well.
