They are among the millions of American men living with an autoimmune disease today. And, these men are the focus of a new public service campaign launched today by American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA).

The "Men Get Autoimmune Diseases, Too" campaign consists of 30-second radio and television public service announcements (PSAs) and educational materials designed to raise awareness about the fact that, while women are disproportionately affected, these diseases do not discriminate when it comes to gender. Specifically, the PSAs inform men about the importance of knowing their family AQ.

"AQ is a play on IQ and stands for Autoimmune Quotient. It's about knowing how likely you are to develop an autoimmune disease given the prevalence of theses disease in your family," explained Virginia Ladd, president and executive director, AARDA.

Men and Autoimmune Disease

While nearly 75 percent of the more than 23.5 million Americans who suffer from autoimmune disease are women, millions of American men suffer from these diseases, too. However, autoimmune diseases that develop in men tend to be more severe.

There are a few autoimmune diseases that men are just as or more likely to develop as women, including:

-- Ankylosing spondylitis

-- Type 1 diabetes

-- Wegener's granulomatosis

-- Psoriasis

In addition, diseases that affect blood vessels can lead to problems with erection. Fo
