AUTOIMMUNITY

Master your
autoimmunity.

If we know anything about autoimmune disease, it’s that it's heterogeneous - even people with the same diagnosis can be affected very differently. Mymee was built to help people living with autoimmunity tackle their disease symptoms on an individual, case-by-case basis.

Common symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Joint swelling and redness
  • Numbness and tingling in the hands and feet
  • Achy joints or muscles
  • Hair loss
  • Fever
  • Skin irritations or rashes

Overview

One of the functions of the immune system is to protect the body from invading germs, like viruses or bacteria. Unfortunately, in some cases, immune cells make a mistake and attack the very cells they are meant to protect. This leads to uncontrolled inflammation in the areas affected by the attack.

There are more than 80 different types of autoimmune diseases, and many more that are undefined or considered rare. While genetics determine how susceptible an individual is to developing autoimmunity, external factors in a person’s diet, lifestyle and environment play a big role. These factors or “triggers” can also lead to unpredictable spikes in disease symptoms which can greatly impact quality of life.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that primarily affects the joints, causing pain, swelling, stiffness, and in some cases, joint damage and loss of function.

Most individuals with RA experience flares of symptoms, such as inflammation or joint pain, followed by periods of remission.

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Systemic lupus erythematosus (“SLE” or “lupus”) is an autoimmune disease that can cause inflammation in any body part or system. Lupus is often characterized by intermittent flares of symptoms followed by periods of remission.

Other forms of lupus include: Discoid lupus, which is usually limited to inflammatory skin lesions; and drug-induced lupus, brought on by the use of certain medications.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune skin disease. Inflammation in the skin leads to development of “plaques” - red, raised areas often covered with silvery scales. Between 10-30% of people with psoriasis also have psoriatic arthritis.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is an autoimmune condition that causes persistent inflammation of the digestive tract. Two common types of IBD are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. In either form, organs outside of the GI tract can also sometimes become inflamed.

Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is an autoimmune disease that primarily consists of inflammation that affects the spine, though in some cases hips and shoulders are also affected. The diagnosis of AS may be delayed when symptoms are mistaken for ordinary back pain.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune condition that affects the brain and spinal cord. In MS, the immune system attacks the insulating material, or myelin, surrounding the nerves which leads to a disruption in the signals that travel along our nerve fibers.

COVID 
Long Haul

COVID long haulers are individuals who were previously diagnosed with COVID and experience on-going symptoms that often resemble the health issues seen in people with chronic autoimmune diseases like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.2,3

Mymee was the first to design a remote COVID long haul support program for those with persistent health symptoms resembling autoimmunity. for autoimmunity issues. The program began as a collaboration with Mount Sinai Hospital’s Center for Post-COVID Care in July 2020.

If this sounds like you, we can help.

Other Autoimmune diseases

Autoimmune disease affects more than 24 million people in the United States and an additional 17 million have autoantibodies, which are a key indicator of being at risk of autoimmunity.
