A cutting-edge examination of the mysterious world of
autoimmune disease—and the new discoveries made daily that
may save women's lives
chronic fatigue syndrome, vasculitis, juvenile diabetes,
alopecia, Graves' disease, Sjogren's syndrome, lupus,
rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis—are among the
most devastating conditions afflicting women today and the
most resistant to diagnosis and treatment. In all of them,
the body's immune system begins to attack healthy and
normally functioning cells. And one of the biggest puzzles
is why 80 percent of autoimmune disease sufferers are women.
In this groundbreaking book, world-class immunologist Dr.
Robert Lahita brings years of intensive research, patient
care, and diagnostics to shed light on the mysteries of
these conditions, with a particular focus on how they
affect—and how he treats—women.
Through case studies, he
reveals the early warning signs, symptoms, diagnostic
processes, and the most innovative treatments for all the
most common—and many of the less well known—autoimmune
diseases. He offers a scientifically sound and sensitive
work that is the best resource available to help understand
these perplexing and debilitating diseases.
