Autoimmune disease may take place when the immune system of the body starts attacking itself. The immune system is supposed to get rid of bacteria, viruses, germs, and other sources of infection. Sometimes, the body starts attacking itself. This may happen to people who may have some sort of genetic disposition. Take note that the exact cause of autoimmune diseases is unknown.

Some say that it may occur when a bacteria or virus confuses the immune system and triggers some changes. Acquiring autoimmune diseases may also be genetic. If someone in your family has it, you are also likely to get it. If you have genes that are more prone to acquiring autoimmune disorders, then you are a higher chance of getting it.
