Immune-Mediated Inflammatory Diseases

What are they?
Immune-mediated inflammatory diseases, also known as inflammatory diseases of immune dysregulation, are diseases that cause an immune response that is too much for the body to handle because of the inflammation that it causes. These diseases can cause damage to organs such as the heart, liver, stomach, and skin.

These diseases are characterized by inflammation in the body. Since they cause inflammation to the organs, they can easily cause organ damage and can lead to death.

It is said that inflammation can be a cause of many diseases. These diseases include:

  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Arthritis
  • Allergies
  • Cardiovascular diseases

  • Because of this, a lot of new scientific research is constantly being done to find out more about these diseases.

    Inflammatory diseases and aging
    IMIDs (immune mediated inflammatory diseases) do not always cause organ damage or death. However, there are some promising studies that suggest that immune mediated inflammatory diseases contribute to aging. Because of this, research about these diseases is very important as the results could eventually help to discover how to slow aging.
