Sjögren Syndrome

Sjögren Syndrome is a systemic autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system reacts against its own structures. The cause is not known, but the symptoms are dryness of the mucous membranes (more than 95% of patients) and effects on the internal organs.

Sjögren Syndrome explained in first person

Professionals and patients explain how you live with the disease
We are convinced that environmental factors play a very important role in the development and appearance of this illness, but today we cannot answer the question “why did I get this disease?
I’ve had to adapt my lifestyle, because as I always say, Sjögren’s syndrome is my lifetime companion. So, there are times when I can live completely normally, but I also have certain limitations.
