Max Sports and Fitness' Linda Hepler, BSN, RN writes an article featuring Nancy Pan, MD, a pediatric rheumatologist at Hospital for Special Surgery that defines autoimmune disease and the signs that your child may be living with an autoimmune disease.
According to the article, the cause of autoimmune diseases is still a mystery, although research is beginning to make it less so. "Genetics certainly come into play," said Dr. Pan. "If a child's parent or grandparent has an autoimmune disease, there's a higher likelihood of the child having that condition or another autoimmune disorder."
