Sjogren's Syndrome

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 05 May 2022

Sjogren's syndrome is a disorder of your body immune system determined by its 2 most common symptoms, completely dry eyes and a completely dry mouth. In Sjogren's syndrome, the mucous membranes and moisture-secreting glands of your eyes and mouth are usually affected first, leading to decreased splits and saliva. Although you can develop Sjogren's syndrome at any age, lots of people are older than 40 at the time of diagnosis. Sjogren's syndrome is an autoimmune disorder. Your body immune system mistakenly attacks your body's own cells and tissues. You might have dry skin in other areas that require moisture, such as your skin, nose, and throat. Sjogren's can affect other parts of the body, including your joints, lungs, kidneys, blood vessels, digestive body organs, and nerves. It might include fabricated tears for color eyes and sucking on sugar-free candy or drinking water often for a dry mouth. Medicines may aid with extreme symptoms. The impacts of Sj gren's syndrome can be widespread. Medical care professionals identify Sj gren's syndrome as being either: primary, when the syndrome develops by itself and not as the result of another condition; secondary, when the syndrome develops in combination with another autoimmune disorder, such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. Sj gren's syndrome can be difficult to detect, since it has similar symptoms to other conditions and there is no single test for it. Your physician will inquire about your symptoms and perform a test to see exactly how completely dry your mouth and eyes are.
