Nearly 4% of the world's population is affected by one of more than 80 different autoimmune diseases.
Women and people of color are more than 3 times more likely to be diagnosed with autoimmune disease.
Many people with these chronic health issues often have immense difficulty getting properly tested or treated even after seeing many providers
Often, people seeking help will hear “everything is fine” or “it’s just a sign of getting older”, when they know they don’t feel fine and feel like they aren’t being heard.
Left unchecked, all these issues can lead to more complicated health problems such as accumulating more autoimmune disease, living in chronic pain, joint or body damage and an inability to live the lives they want to live.
