Prognosis of Autoimmune diseases
Prognosis for Autoimmune diseases: Although autoimmune
diseases are chronic, the course they take is unpredictable. A doctor cannot
foresee what will happen to the patient based on how the disease starts.
Patients should be monitored closely by their doctors so environmental factors
or triggers that may worsen the disease can be discussed and avoided and new
medical therapy can be started as soon as possible. Frequent visits to a doctor
are important in order for the physician to manage complex treatment regimens
and watch for medication side effects. (Source: excerpt from Understanding Autoimmune Disease: NIAID)

The 'prognosis' of Autoimmune diseases usually refers to the likely outcome
of Autoimmune diseases.
The prognosis of Autoimmune diseases
may include the duration of Autoimmune diseases, chances of complications of Autoimmune diseases,
prospects for recovery, recovery period for Autoimmune diseases, survival rates,
and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Autoimmune diseases.
Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
