From the expert

Autoantibody tests are used to investigate chronic progressive arthritis type symptoms and/or unexplained fevers, fatigue, muscle weakness and rashes. Autoimmune disorders are a group of conditions in which the immune system attacks the body's own tissues as if they were a foreign substance. The reaction is similar to those that occur in allergies except the hypersensitivity response is to the body rather than an `outside` substance.

Genetic factors may play a role and women are more frequently affected than men. Autoimmune disorders can affect the adrenal glands (Addisons Disease), red blood cells (a type of haemolytic anaemia), pancreas (Diabetes Mellitus type 1), thyroid (Graves Disease), muscle receptors (Myaesthenia Gravis), liver (Chronic Hepatitis), sperm and ovary (Auto-immune Infertility) and more.

A single autoantibody test is not diagnostic, but may give clues as to whether a particular disorder is likely or unlikely to be present. Each autoantibody result should be considered individually and as part of the group.
