PID IS PRIMARY IMMUNE DEFICIENCY

 Primary Immune Deficiency varies from patient to patient.  And it covers over 200 immune system disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, hypogammaglobulinema, multiple sclerosis, skin disorders, respiratory disorders, neurological disorders and many more.  Without properly treating the immune system, the patient continues to suffer by repeated infections or malignancies, on some cases nerve or kidney damage.   Because so many cases are going un-diagnosed these patients often suffer from repeated treatments that not only cause additionals side affects, but can also cause additional organ damage.  Hundreds of thousands of cases are being treated repeatedly as common colds, and routine exams, when they need to be recognized as chronic illnesses.  

 

Immune2life, is working to raise funding to begin early childhood testing.  By working with the community, school, teachers, and immunization centers we are able to provide counseling, referrals to immunology specialists, group sessions, educational couseling for continued health safety programs.  Working with the center for disease control, we are able to provide patients with educational material regarding their specific illness.  Our goal is to educate the public and patients and build a facility to provide continued support.  PID does not have a cure, and is considered a chronic illness, but new therapies such as I.V.i.g are being used thru numerous physicians that help the patient lead normal lives without continued illnesses.
