The immune system protects us from the outside environment so we can all lead a healthy life. Any dysfunction in the immune system can result in several diseases that we deal with in day-to-day life. The immune system consists of many different types of cells, and these cells make antibodies and mediators.

The combination of these mediators and antibodies works to keep us healthy. If they do not function, people develop a group of diseases called immunodeficiency diseases. A common example that we all know now is AIDS, which is caused by the HIV virus that attacks the immune cells.

Allergists are physicians who are specially trained to diagnose, treat and manage patients’ allergies, asthma and immunologic disorders. These can include primary immunodeficiency disorders, common to very rare conditions across all ages and the body’s organ systems, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology states.

The immune system is a key to keeping us healthy. Even though as allergists and immunologists we do not deal with all immune-related diseases, we have a deep knowledge of how the immune system works and how to diagnose such conditions.
