If you experience autoimmune disease symptoms that don’t subside on their own, check in with Vibrant Health Care specialists for an evaluation. Early detection and treatment help reduce or eliminate unpleasant symptoms and disease complications.
To diagnose an autoimmune disorder, your Vibrant Health Care provider reviews your symptoms and medical history and completes an exam. Our providers may use blood tests or a biopsy to diagnose your condition and establish the most appropriate treatment.
The autoimmune disease treatment that best suits your needs depends on the type of medical condition you have. Your doctor may suggest one or more of the following:
Making certain lifestyle changes helps reduce inflammation and other symptoms associated with an autoimmune condition. Eat a healthy diet, get regular exercise and plenty of sleep, avoid smoking, and limit or avoid alcohol. Reduce stress whenever possible.
Taking medications can alleviate pain and inflammation, balance hormone levels, and help prevent future joint damage associated with autoimmune problems. Your doctor will work with you to find the most effective treatment.
