Sjögren’s is the second most prevalent rheumatic autoimmune disease striking as many as four million Americans making it three times more common than lupus and multiple sclerosis. Despite its prevalence, Sjögren’s still remains relatively unknown.
What is Sjögren’s? (SHOW-grins)
Sjögren’s is a devastating disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the moisture-producing glands. Along with symptoms of dryness it can affect any body organ or system.
