Watch Out For These Other Signs and Symptoms

There are over 100 different auto immune diseases known, and the list continues to grow according to Dr. Amber Taylor, endocrinologist and Director of the Diabetes Center at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore. “They are a diverse group of diseases and affect nearly every organ system of the body.”

Dr. Taylor recommends talking with your health-care professional if you notice pain in any of your joints, if your skin becomes tight, if you develop hives or notice any blood in your bowel motions. Other symptoms that may raise concern include weight loss that is unintentional, dry eyes and mouth, abdominal pain, headaches as well as a change of color inside the oral cavity. It is important to remember that these signs and symptoms are non-specific and may relate to other kinds of conditions so a careful check-up is important if these kinds of symptoms appear.
