World renowned expert in autoimmune disorders and the Founder and Director of the Center for Multisystem Disease, Dr. Jill Schofield, generously chatted with us in a recent interview.
Autoimmunity (dysregulation of the immune system) is genetically inherited and often has multiple triggers. Dr. Schofield discusses the relationship between autoimmune diseases, Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes, and dysautonomia (abnormal function of the autonomic nervous system). She dives into the difference between autoimmune and non-autoimmune dysautonomia and small-fiber neuropathy. She explores diagnoses like antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS), when you might seek a work up for APS, and issues a call for action for doctors and researchers in this fast-growing field.
Thank you so much to Dr. Schofield for taking the time to share her expertise and to Co-host Jennifer Milner for sharing her insights!
