Certain skin disorders can develop when the body begins to attack itself. Autoimmune diseases are caused when the immune system misperceives bodily functions as a threat. This can create medical conditions such as psoriasis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. Individuals in Gwinnett County can receive comprehensive autoimmune disease treatment from Medical Dermatology Specialists in Lawrenceville.

Risk Factors for Autoimmune Disease

There is no known cause as to why autoimmune diseases develop. Certain factors can increase your risk. These risk factors include medications, family history of autoimmune disease, smoking and exposure to toxins. Women can be at higher risk and more likely to experience life-threatening symptoms. African American and Latino individuals may be more susceptible to contracting an autoimmune disease.

Autoimmune Disease Symptoms

Depending on the autoimmune disease, symptoms can vary. Common symptoms of autoimmune disease include fatigue, joint swelling and pain, skin issues, digestive problems, abdominal pain, swollen glands and recurring fever. An accurate diagnosis by a medical professional is necessary to help provide relief for these symptoms. During a consultation, a medical dermatologist can examine your skin and recommend the best course of treatment to suit your unique needs.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
