The plasma donation process typically leaves you free from the normal blood donation side effects of feeling dizzy or weak. Your body regenerates the plasma collected within 24 hours, meaning you can donate up to twice a week.

Auto-Immune Fact Sheet

Definition:
An autoimmune disorder is a condition that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. There are more than 80 different types of autoimmune disorders. In patients with an autoimmune disorder, the immune system can’t tell the difference between healthy body tissue and antigens. The result is an immune response that destroys normal body tissues. With autoimmune disorders, the immune system reacts to normal body tissues. The cause of the immune system to no longer distinguish between healthy body tissues and antigens is unknown.

Symptoms:
Symptoms of an autoimmune disease vary widely and depend on the specific disease. A group of very nonspecific symptoms often accompany autoimmune diseases, which may include: dizziness, fatigue, general ill feeling and low grade fever.

Treatment:
The goals of treatment are to reduce symptoms and control the autoimmune process while maintaining the body’s ability to fight disease. Treatments vary widely and depend on the specific disease and your symptoms.
