Type II hypersensitivity: Or cytotoxic reactions, are antibody dependent, IgG or IgM binds to the own body cell surface after being altered by a protein, so the immune system recognizes as non-self (foreign) attacks and destroys the cell by fixing a protein called complement, which in turn forms the Membrane Attack Complex and destroy the cell, the most famous is hemolytic anemias and some auto immune diseases ...Read more
Desensitization: Allergen desensitization does not work on all allergies--it is most effective with seasonal allergens, indoor allergens and insect bites. Insect bites from bees, red ants and wasps are treated with allergen desensitization. Allergen desensitization uses small amounts of the allergen the person is allergic to and injects the allergen into the individual's body. ...Read more

Very different: A hypersensitivity is generally what we call an allergic reaction. This is mostly to things you find in the environment, and most of the time is driven by an antibody called ige. An autoimmune disease is usually driven by igg antibody, and what is being attacked is something in the body that the immune system thinks is "foreign" and should be "dealt with" when it shouldn't be. ...Read more

Easy fainting: Carotid sinuses are bulb like structures in the carotid arteries that contain blood pressure sensors. When blood pressure (bp) increases they send signals to drop the bp. As we get older the arteries become stiff with calcifications and an outside stimulus for instance like when shaving can cause an exagerated response, dropping bp so much that we get nauseated and even faint. ...Read more
