Recommended Posts

Autoimmune Diseases Number Two Cause of Chronic Illness.


The report estimates that 50 million Americans have more than 100 autoimmune diseases, and 75 percent of those affected are women. Estimates of the costs incurred include direct and indirect health care and out-of-pocket patient expenses, as well as loss of earnings. In addition, unnecessary costs are incurred by delays in getting a diagnosis and starting treatment. (HealthDay News) MDNews.com. 04/02/11. (Also see: Autoimmunity)
