Ethnicity matters in Sjogren's syndrome
« on: June 06, 2019, 06:59:19 AM »
Did we already know this? Study stems from July, 2018. Almost scared to read it out loud due to being politically incorrect, but here are the facts according to research:

I didn't know that, but it's interesting, thank you.   I don't see that it's politically incorrect, it's well known that ethnic groups can vary in their risks for particular health problems.
Dry eyes (MGD), nose, mouth, labyrinthitis, rashes, dry skin (occasional eczeme), mouth ulcers, constant but fluctuating fatigue.  Blood tests and Schirmers negative,no Sjogrens dx yet.   Flax oil, multivitamins,  saline nasal spray, Hylo forte, Lacrilube, organic castor oil for eyes, moisturisers.
